Bangers raise cash for Yorkshire Air Ambulance
A scheme that turns old bangers into cash is helping to drive fundraising for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Money is being raised for the charity through Giveacar, a not-for-profit social enterprise that accepts donations of old cars which are then scrapped or auctioned for charity.
So far, the rapid response emergency charity has received over £4,500 through the donation of 32 cars to Giveacar.
In the last year alone, the scheme has generated more than £1,500.
Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s head of fundraising, Paul Gowland, said: “This is a great idea allowing people who need to get rid of their old car to donate to their favourite charity without it costing them a penny.
“We are very grateful to those who have chosen to support us through Giveacar and hope the scheme continues to go from strength to strength.”
Patrick Church, Giveacar’s general manager, said: “We are thrilled to be able to raise money for fantastic charities like Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
