Britain’s best scrapyard The Scrappers have donated used tyres to a local charity which helps those who have fallen on difficult times in the area.
Bolton Community Kitchen helps feed the homeless, vulnerable, elderly and ex-forces twice a week.
This non-profit charity, solely run by volunteers, also has an allotment opposite their bi-weekly venue at Bolton Rugby club . There, they grow fruit and veg and provide a chilled and serene setting for people who need it.
The donated used tyres, 100 in all, will be used to build a retaining wall at the allotment which will grow beautiful wild flowers and provide a tranquil area when they come into bloom next spring.
Charity chairman Gareth Bradbury explains more:
“We get around 35 people a session, 70 a week which is less than before Covid,” he said.
“Anybody who turns up gets a good meal and a chat. We are open Wednesday nights and
When you think of scrap vehicles the last thing you’d probably associate them with is entertainment and showbiz.
But you’d be surprised!
The Scrappers are often asked to provide scrap cars and vans for all manner of different projects.
Just this week we sent a fleet of vehicles to a family festival called Geronimo. The motors were needed for a monster trucks spectacular which witnessed gigantic trucks driving and flying over our cars.
It went down a treat!
Prior to that, we provided vehicles for a new arts and street food spot in Manchester city centre. The vehicles at Homeland are used as a back drop for socialising, creative get-togethers and networking.
We’ve also supplied cars to legendary soap Coronation Street and our own yard has been the backdrop for numerous pop and rock music videos over the years.
So you see, The Scrappers are probably more showbiz than you’d originally think.
We buy all makes and models of cars, we are open 7 days a week for vehicle collections, payments are instant straight into your bank! Give us a call or fill in the form for an instant quote for your vehicle.
