Chibozu Community Trust would like to gratefully and sincerely thank Giveacar and supporters that donated their cars towards the donation we received. So many people’s lives in Simooya Village have been improved as a result of the donation received. The Giveacar donation of £937.30 provided clean and safe drinking water to homes in Simooya Village, Simooya Community School and the local Chibozu clinic. The Giveacar team was very helpful and supportive throughout the whole process of raising the required funds for the first phase of the village water project.

We are excited to be part of this scheme. Your generosity will help us support local people with a learning disability. For example, £400 could enable a local child to attend our specialist after-school club for a whole school term and help them fulfil their potential whilst providing support and respite for their parents.

Giveacar is the brain child of a socially aware and very green group who saw the opportunity to help people with the eternal problem of what to do with an old, possibly much loved car that has become too expensive to fix while at the same time helping good causes. The MS Research Treatment & Education has already received over £4,500 through Giveacar donations ranging from £10 to £255. We are most grateful to the all of the car donors who wanted to dispose of their old vehicles responsibly while helping MS Research to carry out vital research to help people, young and old affected by a life changing, progressive disabling condition. There are over 100,000 people in the UK diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) which can lead to increasing dependency, often with pain, fatigue, loss of personal dignity and restrictions to daily life. MS Research is a charity dedicated to furthering our understanding of MS and developing better treatments through research and education, finding real answers to the many and varied difficulties those who have MS and those close to them face daily. If you have an old car that has come to the end of its useful life Giveacar will collect and appropriately and responsibly recycle all car donations free of charge to you while providing valuable income to MS Research.

We are delighted to be one of the beneficiaries of Giveacar which we see as a unique way of raising the important funds we need. Stroke affects over 150,000 people in the UK every year. The funding from Giveacar helps us to save lives and prevent stroke. Every car donated really does make a difference. Since joining the scheme we have been amazed at how this has become a regular income source. We are very grateful to all those who have supported us through this innovative scheme, we hope it will continue so we can help more stroke survivors to make the best possible recovery they can.

Although London City Mission has been around since 1835, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to raise funds to carry on our ministry. We are delighted to be working with Giveacar, and so far we have raised over £1,400 through them for our work by simply promoting it through our social media channels and quarterly magazine; thanks to a number of generous supporters who have donated their scrap cars. An old heap rusting away on the drive may simply be an inconvenience to a supporter, but by disposing of it quickly and easily though Giveacar, they may raise £100 for our work. This would provide refreshments for a month at a drop-in or homework club at one of our Christian Centres dotted around London, or literally be “bangers for cash” and help providing towards a hot breakfast for the 100 or so homeless guests that visit our centre near Waterloo every morning, or any of a number of other ways that we continue to share Jesus Christ with all London.
