Gordon Grove Metal Company, registered Authorised Treatment Facility in South East London, has launched a new charity of the month scheme.
GGMC already gives customers the chance to donate some or all of the proceeds from scrapping their car to one of their chosen charities, however, they have now launched a new scheme to run alongside it.
The new scheme will see a portion of the proceeds from every car scrapped each month donated to one of their chosen charity partners. Ben, the automotive charity and local homeless charity, Brixton Soup Kitchen, have already seen the benefits of this new scheme.
Gordon Grove Metal Company chose Ben as their first charity of the month in response to Ben’s urgent call for help. Ben, who provide vital support for people within the automotive industry, stated they have seen a 50% increase in people requesting support, but they face a £1m shortfall with fundraising events cancelled.
Matt Wigginton, Fundraising Director at Ben, said:
“Thank you to GGMC for naming us as their charity of the month and supporting us through their car donation scheme! We rely on the support of our industry so we can continue providing vital support for automotive people who need us – and they need us more than ever right now. We can’t thank GGMC enough!”
In December, the GGMC team pledged to deliver food and essentials to local charity Brixton Soup Kitchen in time for Christmas.
Brixton Soup Kitchen helps the homeless and people in need. They are open to the public daily to offer a hot meal and a space to stay warm alongside many other services including a free clothes bank, counselling and free legal advice. Craig and Paul Barnaby, Directors of Gordon Grove Metal Company delivered a variety of goods from food to sleeping bags.
Brixton Soup Kitchen said:
“Thank you so much for your amazing donation you made on Friday. You will make a lot of families have a lovely Christmas this year. Thank you for your support.”
Gordon Grove Metal Company feel honoured to be able to help such incredible causes and give back to the community. Craig Barnaby, Managing Director of Gordon Grove Metal Company said:
“As a team, we are grateful we are able to donate to charity. We wouldn’t be able to do so without the support of our customers whom we are very grateful for.”
