ASM Auto Recycling, the Oxfordshire based vehicle salvage agents and green parts recyclers, are offering to donate all proceeds raised from the sale of a very lightly damaged 2015 BMW 5 Series.

This auction lot ends on Wednesday 22nd December and all the funds from the winning bid will again be donated to the Thames Valley Air Ambulance, the same charity as last year when ASM auctioned off a 2010 Mercedes-Benz CLS 350, which raised £4,110.

The ASM Team said:

“Once again, given the incredibly tough year that most people have faced, we have decided to try and finish 2021 on a bit of a positive note. This is already a smashing piece of repairable salvage (no pun intended), but we think this gesture makes it even better!

All proceeds from its sale will be donated by ASM to an amazing charity – The Thames Valley Air Ambulance – who without any Government or National Lottery funding, manage to provide emergency medical services by air and land. This incredible team of mostly volunteers literally put themselves on the frontline saving lives, giving people the best chance of survival when the worst happens.

We are extremely proud and delighted to be supporting this awesome charity.”
