Scrap your car, help the environment, and support families living with dementia

May 1, 2021

This May we are being supported by Scrap Car Comparison as their charity of the month. Funds will be raised for Dementia UK by scrapping your old, damaged or unwanted vehicle.

You can choose to donate some, or all of the profits – it’s completely up to you. Their service is provided over the phone by one of their sales representatives, and the collection of your vehicle is free of charge and at a time and place that suits you.

Did you know that scrapping a car is basically the same as recycling it? When a car is scrapped, many of the parts – such as the steel and zinc bodywork, rubber tyres and glass windows – can be recycled and reused to make new items, from new cars to racetrack roadbeds, and even wedding rings! In fact, as much as 95% of a scrap car will be recycled and given a new lease of life.

So, donating a car to a Scrap Car Comparison not only generates new funds for Dementia UK, but also keeps that car from going into landfill in a safe, sustainable and environmentally friendly way. This scheme is a unique way to support Dementia UK and our Admiral Nurse service. If you have a car to scrap, please contact Scrap Car Comparison today for a quote and please consider supporting Dementia UK by donating the scrap value (or part value) of your vehicle.

Scrap Car Comparison aim to raise £5,000 during May, which could pay for 135 families calling our national dementia Helpline for free to speak with an Admiral Nurse.

More good news – now that Dementia UK has been featured as May’s charity of the month, Scrap Car Comparison customers can choose to donate to Dementia UK at any point in the future.
