Longfield is pleased to announce they have teamed up with Stroud Recovery, at Rocksmoor Mills on the Bath Road to launch their new Motors for Money car recycling scheme.

The idea is simple. If someone has an old vehicle  they want taken off their hands they can have it scrapped and the proceeds donated to Longfield. The hospice will arrange to have the motor collected and disposed of with the help of Stroud Recovery. Instead of receiving payment for the scrap value the proceeds will be made to Longfield as a donation.

Jason Wielgus, owner of Stroud Recovery, says he’s pleased to pitch in to help.

“It’s a good idea, I’m going to offer it to my customers too. There’s no cost to the customer, they just give us the car and the log book, we sort out the paperwork, and we take care of the rest – it’s hassle free for them. We’re all up for raising money for charities, especially local ones like Longfield, and this is a great way to do it.”

The company is donating its services to collect old cars that can be recycled. They will then be scrapped or if appropriate sent to auction and any proceeds donated to Longfield.

To donate your old vehicle or to find out more about the scheme please contact Jan Ryder [email protected]  or ring fundraising on 01453 886868
