Do you own a banger that’s merely gathering dust in the garage? Then you can do your bit for charity!
Giveacar is a UK based fundraising organisation that specialises in donating unwanted and scrap cars to charitable causes throughout the world, including Women’s Aid.
They provide a FREE service which is available throughout the UK, and can work with you hand-in-hand in the following ways:
• They can arrange the collection of the vehicle;
• Depending on its age and condition, they can either send it for environmentally safe disposal and recycling at an Authorised Treatment Facility, or to a salvage auction;
This means that a large portion of the proceeds are donated to a nominated charity of the vehicle owner’s choice!
Since Giveacar was set up in 2010, the organisation has already raised over £350,000 for over 250 charities!
To arrange collection of a car, visit Giveacar.co.uk or call 020 0011 1664, quoting Women’s Aid as your preferred charity.

eBay for Charity
Now you can sell an item on eBay and donate from 10% to 100% of the final sale price to Women's Aid. eBay has partnered with MissionFish, a not for profit service provider, to create the eBay for Charity fundraising programme which makes it easy for charities to benefit from trading on eBay. While listing an item on eBay you can choose to donate a percentage, or all, of your item's final selling price to Women's Aid. Buy or sell on eBay to support Women's Aid.
Small packages of shares can be useless to companies and individuals because they cost more to sell than they're worth, but you can donate them to charity. ShareGift (registered charity 1052686) accepts shares as donations, and collects them until there are enough to sell. The proceeds are used to support UK charities, including Women's Aid.
