Radfield Scrap A Car Charity Raise Funds For Stafford Homeless

Using the online scrap for charity scheme, ‘Give a Car’, the Stafford branch staff decided to donate the value of the car to the Stafford-based charity, House of Bread.

The Hyundai Getz had been a company pool car for several years and over time had been used across all branches in Staffordshire, Shropshire, Cheshire & Worcestershire, helping the company grow to what it has become today.

Company Director, Alex Green, commented,

"It is the first car we bought for the business and it has served us well over the years, keeping our carers moving and our clients well looked after."

By donating the value of the car to a local charity, Radfield has showcased its core values of caring for the community and going above and beyond to help those in need.

House of Bread began as a soup kitchen for the homeless of Stafford, but over the past 5 years has grown into one of the town’s most recognisable charities. Will Morris, Director of House of Bread, commented,

"Without donations like this we wouldn’t be able to survive as a charity. It’s these significant contributions from the people and businesses of Stafford that keeps us going, as the vulnerability of the homeless is forever increasing."

Alongside maintaining its roots by serving hot food on two days a week, the charity also has an extensive Food Bank network and has recently begun taking donations of clothes and shoes.

The ‘Give a Car’ scheme, allows you to donate the proceeds of a car to a charity of your choice, and they will come and collect the car from you, meaning that there is no unwanted hassle involved.
