Hear from some of them about why they love Givecar...
Giveacar has given our supporters a great way to raise funds for the Brooke and be kind to the environment.
Our supporters have raised over £6,000 since we started working with Giveacar and we are delighted by the service they provide.
The Giveacar scheme has helped the RSPCA raise over £25,000 from car donations, which is a fantastic amount. These donations are vital in helping us to continue our life changing work rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming the animals in our care. We really appreciate the support and look forward to a continued relationship. Thank you so much.
Sightsavers would like to thank Giveacar for raising over £4,400 to support our work preventing avoidable blindness in some of the world’s poorest countries. It costs just £30 for a sight restoring operation, an operation which can transform someone’s life overnight, so just one simple transaction using Giveacar’s innovative fundraising initiative can make a real difference.
Since promoting Giveacar to our supporters we have raised over £3,000 for St Richard’s Hospice. It is a great way of securing extra revenue for the hospice and is an easy and efficient process for the donor. St Richard’s publicises the scheme and Giveacar do the rest…. all we have to do is thank the generous supporter and bank the money. We would recommend Giveacar to any charity looking for alternative ways of raising extra funds.
In just over 16 months St Catherine’s Hospice have raised nearly £2000 with Giveacar. It’s been a great help in raising our green profile and added to our important recycling and ‘green’ portfolio. As a local hospice it’s important we maximise every opportunity to raise funds and Giveacar have given us another string to our bow by giving supporters the opportunity to raise money for us, recycling their vehicles. The service is so quick and simple, we actually recycled one of our own hospice service vehicles raising nearly £100.
Action Medical Research has raised over £1,200 in the last year with Giveacar. It’s such a simple idea and even our staff have got involved. Our Communications Manager, Claudine Powell, recycled her car for Action and recommends others do the same. “I searched for a reliable scrap car dealer online. When I found somewhere that sent the profits to charity, I thought that was great. Giveacar’s service was excellent. I filled in my details online and received a phone call an hour later. A local scrap dealer arrived bang on time the next morning and took the car away with no hassle. It made my life easier and raised £100 for Action. I would encourage anyone who has a car to get rid of to think about using this service. You can raise money for a good cause as well as helping the environment.”
Food For Thought Africa are proud to have been working with Giveacar for five years. This is a fantastic fundraising scheme whereby Giveacar do all the work and charities like ours receive all the benefit! The Giveacar team are friendly and helpful and there is total transparency throughout the process. So far Giveacar have helped to raise over £2,000 for Food For Thought Africa and this money has been used to feed 150 school children in one of the poorest parts of Africa for 1 year.
We look forward to continuing to work with Giveacar in the future and would recommend that anyone wishing to get rid of an old car give Giveacar a call.
Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust has been working with Giveacar for a while , and has been delighted to raise nearly £4000 through the scheme, helping us to protect, enhance and conserve the precious wildlife in our three counties. We encourage our members and supporters to recycle as much as possible, for example ink cartridges and mobile phones, however to be able to offer car recycling as another option is very novel and unusual! The Giveacar staff are always very helpful and friendly, and we have found the whole process very straightforward. What a fantastic idea, and what a fantastic scheme! Thank you to everyone at Giveacar, and to everyone who has donated a car to our cause so far.
We have been working with Giveacar for three months now and have already raised over £2,000 which will help us continue to support people with dementia and their families.
Giveacar is a wonderful and unique way to support Alzheimer’s Society and we recommend this to both our supporters and other charities.
Tom and his team have taken a simple idea and made it work for wider benefit. The good deeds done with the donations from Giveacar must be awesome. It still amazes us that people choose Old Pit Ponies to benefit. We know nothing of the process. We just trust in Tom & his Team that it’s all done “Proper”. We just get an e-mail from Tom with good news in it. It’s the easiest fundraising we do by far. Just a few words in our Newsletters and to our contacts in the Press.
