A children’s charity is calling on drivers to donate their old car.

The NSPCC in Haringey has joined forces with Giveacar, a firm that auctions off unwanted vehicles to raise money for good causes.

Sam Wilkins, NSPCC community fundraising manager for north London, said: “More than a million cars are scrapped each year in the UK and those cars could be put to good use.

“Giveacar saves you time and inconvenience while helping vulnerable children and young people to access services which could turn their life around.”
