A new initiative that is now generating funds for Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance is Giveacar.

Giveacar is a not-for-profit social enterprise that can turn your old car into cash for any UK charity, including Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. Launched in 2010, Giveacar was the first service of its kind in the UK. Since their inception, they have won several awards and have raised over £4 million for more than 1,800 charities.

Donating your car happens in three easy steps:

Step 1 - Tell Giveacar about your unwanted vehicle. They will arrange to collect it for free.

Step 2 - Depending on its condition, your vehicle will be either auctioned or scrapped.

Step 3 - Giveacar will donate the proceeds (minus their service fees) to your chosen charity and send you a receipt.

It’s as easy as that! To find out more, visit: www.giveacar.co.uk or call: 0207 736 4242
