Car scrap raising funds for CLIC Sargent

A scrap vehicle company in Hampshire is raising funds to support CLIC Sargent throughout June. 

Scrap Car Comparison has chosen CLIC Sargent as one of their featured charities for the month of June to show their support for young lives against cancer.

The company will be encouraging its customers to donate to CLIC Sargent when selling their vehicles for scrap. The company is aiming to raise as much as possible in support of the founder and owner’s five-year-old niece, Snowdrop.

Snowdrop (Snowy) was diagnosed in September aged four with a Rhabdomyosarcoma above her eye, after her parents noticed swelling in her start-of-school photo. She received treatment at Southampton Hospital, as well as travelling to the US for proton beam treatment.

Throughout Snowy’s treatment, her family have received financial and emotional support from CLIC Sargent.

“The financial support we received was wonderful and it took the burden off both of us not working,” said dad Mikey.

“One thing we were particularly grateful for was CLIC Sargent covering our younger daughter Posy’s flights to the U.S. It was important that we remained close as a family and being able to stay together was a huge help.” 

The family also received support from a CLIC Sargent social worker. Mikey said: “Our social worker Becca visited us at home and it was really reassuring to know somebody is there if we needed them.

"Becca also helped fill out lengthy financial forms with us, which was a huge help at a difficult time.”

CLIC Sargent Senior Fundraising Engagement Manager Tori Williams said: “We are so pleased to have the support of Scrap Car Comparison. With the help of their customers, CLIC Sargent will reach families through our support workers and nurses who provide practical, emotional and financial support, to help minimise the damage cancer causes to young people beyond their health.” 

Scrap Car Comparison’s website offers free, instant scrap and salvage quotes. With a nationwide network of scrap car breakers, collectors and dedicated buyers, they work with Authorised Treatment Facilities and approved buyers across the UK – and all collections are free with no charges.

A spokesperson for www.scrapcarcomparison.co.uk said: “CLIC Sargent is a charity which is close to us on a personal level. The opportunity to raise funds for them is the least we can do and we’ll be looking forward to raising as much as we can throughout June.”
