Scrap your car for SPANA! We have teamed up with Giveacar, the car donation website. If you are thinking about scrapping your car, why not donate it to SPANA?  

Giveacar arranges the free collection of all cars, anywhere in the UK. Cars are either recycled, and a donation made based on the value of scrap metal, or put into an auction, and a donation made based on the proceeds of the auction. 

Donate your car to SPANA here.
