Each month we choose a charity to feature to help raise funds for incredibly worthwhile causes and, unlike other car donation schemes, we enable customers to choose how much money they choose to donate. This month we’re supporting MIND Brighton and Hove; a charity which provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote a deeper understanding of mental health.
