Charity Scrap Car Collections a Huge Success

Weldmar Scrap Car

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 jonathan.panton@weld-hospice.org.uk.
