Annual charity car auction calls for donations

Wednesday 1 November 2017

Shoreham Vehicle Auctions is hosting its seventh annual car auction to raise funds for Chestnut Tree House on 6 November 2017.sva logo

Last year’s auction exceeded all expectations, raising a staggering £25,602, and they need your help to raise even more this year.

Shoreham Vehicle Auctions is calling on all south coast used vehicle dealers and consumers to donate any unwanted running vehicles or part-exchanges to its charity auction for Chestnut Tree House.

The auction is looking for all running cars, regardless of age, shape and size, with or without an MOT, from dealers across Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey.

Last year, the generosity of the local motor trade was overwhelming. Yeomans Group, Frosts, Tates, Caffyns Volkswagen, Newton Honda, Dinnages, H.A. Fox, Peter Cooper Group and Harwoods were among the dealers involved in helping Shoreham Vehicle Auctions reach 2016’s fundraising figure, with Johnston Press covering the story across all papers along the south coast.

Catherine Stone, who has led this campaign since Shoreham Vehicle Auctions began supporting Chestnut Tree House in 2011 said: “Our first charity car auction raised £2,000 and gradually grew to £15,000 in 2015. Last year’s staggering achievement of over £25,000 was unbelievable, the generosity of the motor trade is overwhelming. I always aim to improve each year, but this year is going to be tough so please help if you can!”

For every charity vehicle auctioned, Shoreham Vehicle Auctions will add a further £200 to the sale price, with no additional auction fees.

Anyone with a car to gift to the charity auction can email catherine@shorehamvehicleauctions.com or call 01903 851200.

Chestnut Tree House would like to thank Shoreham Vehicle Auctions for their ongoing support.
