Read what some of our charities say about Giveacar

The Royal Hospital for Neuro-Disability in Putney, West London, has been linked with the Giveacar scheme for just a matter of weeks, and yet already the donations are starting to come in. I think the scheme is a fantastic idea and I can only applaud Tom for the effort he is putting into it purely to help charities like us who so desperately need support and funding. Working with Tom is a pleasure and I would thoroughly recommend www.giveacar.co.uk to anyone.

Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People would like to say a big thank you to Giveacar for introducing such a fantastic scheme. This is such an innovative concept and an easy way for people to make a donation to the charity of their choice. It is so wonderful to know that this scheme is raising funds as well as being kind to the environment at the same time. We are very pleased to be working with Giveacar and the Giveacar Team are always so efficient in passing over donations made to us. A very big thank you from all of the children and young people across the East Midlands who will benefit from the donations made, you are helping us to make a difference to their very short lives.

Giveacar is a fantastic and innovative new way to raise money for charity. Since joining the site in June Railway Children has received 15 donations generating over £2,000 in funds to support vulnerable children living alone and at risk on our streets. Feedback from supporters who have used the site has been fantastic; most were very pleased to be able to donate their car in a ‘hassle-free’ way rather than having to go through the process of selling it or contacting scrap dealers.

Giveacar is a fantastic opportunity to become involved with an environmentally friendly project that delivers essential funds to charities throughout the UK. We have been working with Tom and his team for only a few weeks and already we have seen some amazing results. For us, each scrap car donated would feed a puppy for 6 weeks whereas a healthy car donated could do much, much more. I would urge you to get involved. Tom is a passionate man and he and his team have made it so easy to reap rewards. I have seen this project work brilliantly in the USA and our 'hats off' to Tom for making it work here too.

Orangutan Appeal UK have been signed up to the Giveacar initiative for the last 4 months and already we have received over £700 in donations! Its an original and costeffective fundraising tool for small charities such as the Appeal- it does not involve a lot of paper intensive administration, and on top of that its a brilliant environmentally friendly scheme too! Whenever one of the team at Giveacar inform us of a donations its a great surprise, and a cheque promptly arrives by post a few days later. Well done everyone for organising such an efficient and friendly service!

Ever since joining Give a Car in 2010 we have been amazed by, not only the frequency in which we receive donations, but also the amount that we receive. It continues to be a very effective way of fundraising and proves to be very popular with our supporters. It has also been a great way of raising awareness of Rheumatoid Arthritis and the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) , as many people who have donated their cars found out about us through the Give a Car website. Thank you to everyone at Give a Car and thank you to all those who have donated to us.

Giveacar and Marie Curie Cancer Care have been working together for over 6 months now and we’ve found this to be a very valuable relationship. The idea behind Giveacar is a fantastic one and is raising money for great charities across the UK. Every £20 raised for Marie Curie Cancer Care through Giveacar funds an hour of nursing care by Marie Curie Nurses for a terminally ill patient in their own home. We are delighted to be working together and look forward to growing this relationship in the future.

We wanted to say a huge thank you to Giveacar for helping Bloodwise beat blood cancers. Their innovative service has raised over £16,5000, which has been invested in world-class research into leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other blood cancer related disorders. Without the support of organisations such as Giveacar we simply wouldn’t be where we are today’. Ben Sykes, Regional Fundraising Development Manager

The Kit Wilson Trust first got involved with Give a Car when a supporter needed to dispose of a relative’s car that had been sitting outside the house for many years. They didn't want the hassle of trying to get it to the scrap yard, so found Give a Car. Everything was easy from start to finish and they donated the money, which was more than they thought they would get, to KWT. With such an easy process we then added KWT to the list of charities on the Give a Car website. So far we have raised £1,347.69 this way. Thank you Give a Car!

We have only recently joined Giveacar and already we have received valuable funds for our work. At this time it is especially hard for charities and so we are very grateful to Giveacar for this opportunity. Not only does it help us in our otter work but it is also a sound environmental way of getting rid of old cars. Thanks to everyone involved with Giveacar and those who have donated to the International Otter Survival Fund.

Infertility Network UK are delighted to be working with Giveacar. I think this scheme is a great idea and applaud Giveacar for the work they are doing in helping charities like us.

We and our beneficiaries are very grateful for the support and more importantly the much needed funding you have provided us with

Giveacar is an environmentally sound practise that ties in with our green ethos. We ask every unwanted car owner who cares about cat welfare to think seriously about donating to us through the scheme. Wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone donated their unwanted car to help an unwanted cat?

Working with Giveacar has been like a breath of fresh air for us. We get genuinely excited when a cheque from Giveacar arrives as it is unexpected and much needed income that we can put towards our worldwide conservation programmes, from saving turtles in Nicaragua to protecting the mountains of Tajikistan. Thanks to Giveacar, unwanted vehicles are either disposed of in an environmentally secure manner or auctioned off. If this prevents more cars from being produced, that benefits our whole planet.

Deafness Research UK joined this fantastic scheme around a month ago and we have already received around £1000 to help fund our vital work. Giveacar has created huge fundraising potential for our charity and their professional and friendly team are always on hand to provide support when we need it. As a small charity, we do not have the capacity to manage these kinds of fundraising ideas so it came as welcome news that they would be handling it all for us at absolutely no cost. We are extremely thankful for Giveacar and we hope this is the start of a successful relationship to ensure that one day, all forms of hearing disability will be overcome.

We initially contacted Giveacar as we thought it could be another source of income for our small charity, but our partnership with Giveacar has exceeded all expectations. Through the link on our website we have so far received over £3,500 to help us support the young people with special needs in our care and run our children's Hospice and community service which now reaches over 150 families each month. Thank you Giveacar for developing such a simple and yet effective way of bringing new life to so many people out of old cars.

What a refreshing and innovative way to fundraise! In just six months Children Today has received donations to the value of £2000 which will benefit children with disabilities living throughout the UK. It really is a ‘no brainer’ when it comes to disposing of unwanted motor vehicles and helping your favourite causes at the same time – long may Giveacar continue.

Giveacar is an increasingly popular way of raising vital funds for CARA (Charity No.:1135610). We have found that working with Giveacar has given us the professional support and enthusiasm we needed to launch and develop our services. It offers CARA’s members and supporters exciting adventures. In the words of one of our members: 'I do not want this adventure with Giveacar to end’.

Giveacar is a fantastic, innovative way for people to donate to Cancer Research UK. We are hugely grateful to Giveacar for all the amazing donations we have received. With Giveacar’s help, we will be able to fund even more research and get closer to beating cancer.

There is always great excitement when a donation arrives from Giveacar for the Baobab Centre for Young Survivors. As we are a small, young organisation each donation makes a big difference to the services that we can provide and in just a few months we have new funds that enable us to help young asylum seekers and refugees who are alone in the UK attend long-term specialised psychotherapy and gain a sense of belonging in exile. Giveacar is a brilliant, simple idea that works for everyone: the environment, the donors and the beneficiaries. Don’t hesitate to donate your car for scrappage through Giveacar, you will be making a real difference. Congratulations Tom!

I can honestly say that I am frequently dubious about charity schemes on the internet but I can truthfully report that Giveacar has hardly taken up any of my time, was very easy to set up and has now raised £2,991.84 for the Sanctuary. The organiser is a pleasure to work with and it also helps the environment.
