Donate your car

Giveacar is a social enterprise that raises money for charities by accepting donations of unwanted cars. Giveacar arranges the collection of your vehicle for free, and every car is either recycled to high environmental standards or sold at auction. The profits of each sale are then directed to a charity of your choice – so please support Book Aid International by donating your unwanted car to us through Giveacar!

The average donation raised through Give a Car is between £30 and £45, but some supporters’ cars have raised up to an incredible £1,500 for us!

As it costs us just £2 to send a book to sub-Saharan Africa all donations will make a real difference so please consider recycling your old car today.

To find out more about the scheme or recycle your car please call Give a Car on 0200 011 1664 or visit their website.
