12:26pm 19th August 2014
A Dorset charity have found a unique way of collecting donations - by asking for people's scrap cars.
Vehicles no longer needed can be donated to Weldmar Hospicecare trust - who have already raised £13,000 from the idea.
Stuart Esmond from Weymouth lost his mum to cancer, he decided to donate her car to Weldmar. He said: "My father bought my mother the car mainly because it had power assisted steering. This car is no longer needed and I wanted Weldmar to benefit from its value as they do such marvellous work".
Jonathan Panton, Business Fundraising Manager at the charity, said: "All items are considered and I make the gift as easy a process for the donor as possible. We have been offered not just scrap cars but a horsebox lorry, a jet ski, and roadworthy cars that were no longer wanted by their owners".
Anyone who wants to make a donation can call Jonathan on 01305 261800 or 07799447089 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
