The Scrappers Charity Fun Day

Have you heard about the amazing charity fun day we’ve planned for October 20?
It’s the day when we’re going to crush our ONE MILLIONTH CAR! Yes, that’s right, our millionth!!
Over the past 25 years we’ve been crushing and bailing end-of-life vehicles like the clappers!

So as we’re Bolton and the Northwest’s friendliest car breakers, we want to show everyone what we do best by holding an extravaganza celebrating this milestone event. 

We’ll be opening our yard gates at 12 pm, and doing the big crush at 2pm, but that’s just a taster.
There’ll be entertainment for all the family, including rides for the kids and a chance to win some amazing prizes, ranging from a Spanish holiday to a car.
And, of course, we’re going to lay on food and a beer tent. So if you fancy a few – and you don’t hear this very often from a car breakers – leave your car at home!


Money raised on the day will help two charities: The Kids of Bolton, set up by former Wanderer Kevin Davies, and the Baby Unit at Bolton Hospital.
So not only will the day be a fascinating, family-friendly peek into a fairly closed world; two great causes get a real shot in the arm as well.
We want folk to see just what goes on in our scrap yard, from how we break a car – salvaging car parts that can live on in other vehicles – recycling other bits for the wider industrial chain, and ultimately crushing and bailing what remains before it’s carted off and melted down into metal ingots, playing an important role in the overall economy.
The scrap-car business really is a fascinating world, so pop the date in your diary, Sunday October 20, join in the fun, and help raise money for two great causes. It promises to be a great and historic day out for the entire family.
