Old cars wanted …


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 TASTE.


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 350 charities!

To arrange collection of a car, visit Giveacar.co.uk or call 020 0011 1664, quoting TASTE as your preferred charity.

Did you see The Walker?

Dan Walker, patron of TASTE, put up a gallant effort when he appeared on Celebrity Mastermind recently.  Answering questions on The Bonfire Plot, Dan lost by just a single point to Martin Lewis, BBC’s money expert.

Amazing how involved you can get with a programme that isn’t live!  It was recorded in November …. we were amongst the privileged few who knew the outcome …. we watched it on ‘catch-up’ ….. yet we were still willing him to answer that extra question that would make the difference!

Grateful thanks to Dan for donating his appearance fee – we’ll be putting it towards our fund for a new tanker.
