Do you own a vehicle that you want to sell or get rid of? Then please think about donating it to us through Giveacar!
Giveacar raises money for UK charities by scrapping and selling old cars. They provide a nationwide FREE service which:
  • Arranges the collection of the vehicle from your home for FREE; and
  • Recycles it at an authorised facility or sends it to auction (depending on its age and condition).
Scrap donations raise about £55 for the charity (depending on the price of metal) while auction cars can raise much more. 
To arrange donation of a car, visit www.giveacar.co.uk or call 020 7736 4242, quoting Retired Greyhound Trust as your preferred charity.

Recycle your inkjet cartridges and mobile phones to raise money for charity and protect the environment. It's so easy, you just need to select your charity or not for profit group and register online. You can order freepost bags to return your items in, or even arrange for a box of wanted items to be collected, free of charge! You can even monitor your account to see how much you've raised and each quarter an automatic payment will be made to your chosen cause.

Please note that due to Royal Mail's policy changes Recycle4Charity can no longer accept mobile phones in freepost bags. Mobiles sent in this way may incur a surcharge and therefore will not raise a donation. For more information on how to send in mobile phones and a full list of acceptable ink cartridges please visit www.recycle4charity.co.uk/Register/C72184
