Ways to give

Charity Car is the big-hearted scheme from the UK’s largest car recycling network, that allows you to turn your old car into a cash donation for charity. By choosing Charity Car, 100% of the market value of your scrap car will be donated to Arms Around The Child.


You can choose whether to deliver your old car to one of its local recycling centres, or to make things really easy, they’ll collect it from you for free!


It’ll be recycled responsibly, so you can be reassured there will be no harm to the environment.


They’ll also help you to complete the necessary DVLA paperwork and issue your DVLA Certificate of Destruction, so you can prove your car has been recycled legally.
