Novel way of raising money for the Peace Centre

First published in News

THE Peace Centre has come up with a novel way of funding its vital charity work by asking residents to donate their old bangers.

The cause, set up in memory of Johnathan Ball and Tim Parry, has joined up with Giveacar, a non-profit social enterprise that collects unwanted and unused cars for charity.

Regardless of their condition, cars are collected free-of-charge nationwide by Giveacar then sold through an online auction or disposed of at an authorised treatment facility with profits being donated to the Peace Centre.

One man in Aberdeen has already donated a scrap car that fetched nearly £200 at auction, enough to run a full day’s activities for young people vulnerable to violence.
