ACF Car Finance Limited, based in Chester, has shown its support for national charity Children in Need after donating a car to raise funds for the renowned BBC appeal.
ACF Car Finance, which specialises in providing quality used cars and helping to arrange tailored car finance to meet each customers’ individual needs, donated a part-exchanged Vauxhall Vectra for the auction held on the 19th November. The auction was organised by British Car Auctions (BCA) in Walsall as part of the national fundraising campaign taking place across the UK for Children in Need.
The car achieved a fantastic £170 sale price and, as the auction house did not take any fees from the sale, all proceeds will now go directly to the charity.
Leyton Cooper, Group Buying Manager of ACF Car Finance, commented: “We are delighted to show our support for this worthy cause. There was a good auction performance on the night and the car achieved over 140% of CAP average, so we’re pleased that despite the financial climate people are digging deep to give as much as possible to Children in Need.”
This donation is the latest event in the firm’s long line of charitable activities throughout 2009, for a variety of worthy causes including the automotive and partner industry’s own charity BEN.
