BEN the automotive industry charity has recently teamed up with Cartakeback and launched the ‘Scrap and Donate’ scheme. The initiative offers participants a hassle free and compliant way to dispose of their unwanted cars and turn their value into a vital donation to BEN.
The scheme has generated a lot of interest from companies and individuals alike and has recently had its first corporate sign up courtesy of Marshall Volvo Peterborough. After receiving a communication from BEN about the scheme the company was inspired to take part as it gave them a solution to the disposal of their unwanted cars and offered them a chance to support their industry charity.
If you would like to take part in the scheme all you need to do is visit the website www.ben.org.uk/scrapanddonate and enter a few details. Then you choose whether to deliver your unwanted or unused vehicle to your nearest Cartakeback recycling centre, or ask them to collect it free of charge.
Service Driver for Marshall Volvo Peterborough Mark Hawes said, “After a visit from one of BEN’s Regional Development Managers I was overwhelmed by the good work and support that BEN provides to our colleagues in the industry and knew I wanted to do something to make a difference. I then received an email from BEN regarding the ‘Scrap and Donate’ scheme and knew instantly how Marshall Volvo Peterborough could help. I’m very proud to be the first company to take up this scheme and hope many more people follow suit as it is such an easy form of support and could benefit them by removing the hassle of what to do with these unwanted motors.”
