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.
