Rainbow Trust have been partnered with Giveacar since 2011 and are pleased to share that for the month of July 2019, we are their charity in focus.
Giveacar is a not-for-profit social enterprise that turns unwanted vehicles into cash for charity. They arrange a free collection, then either sell your car at auction or scrap it, with the proceeds raised (minus service fees) going to charity. This gives people an ethical, hassle-free way of getting rid of an unwanted car - it’s a win-win!
We have received over £5,000 through the generosity of our supporters who have used Giveacar’s service. This could pay for 202 hours of support to families with a seriously ill child.
“Giveacar is working closely with Rainbow Trust to help raise funds that support ill children and their families. Rainbow Trust supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years with a life threatening or terminal illness and need bespoke support. The work they conduct is a vital source of positivity meaning your beaten-up family car is having a measured and direct impact on a child’s health and future.”
We believe we can raise even more valuable funds this way, and help even more families get the expert support they need. If you have a scrap or unwanted vehicle visit and donate the proceeds to Rainbow Trust.
