Motability keeps motoring at BCA

BCA's Classic & Historic Division has donated £1,527 to the national disability charity, Motability.

BCA makes a donation to the charity for every catalogue that is sold throughout the annual Classic & Historic auction programme.

Simon Henstock, BCA's UK operations director, was on hand to present a cheque to Motability's fundraising & marketing director, Hazel Gotfraind, at the first classic sale of the year held at Blackbushe last month.

Simon Henstock said: "We are delighted to continue our support for Motability through this initiative which to date has generated thousands of pounds for this most worthy organisation.

"It is all too easy to take our cars for granted and the freedom it gives us to travel when and where we like. Motability gives this opportunity of mobility to disabled people and makes it affordable. This is not just about the costs of adapting cars – many modern vehicles already meet the needs of Motability customers and their carers – but about giving the access and equality to disabled people."

Receiving the cheque, Gotfraind added: "I would like to thank BCA and particularly the Classic & Historic Division for their continued support over the years. This substantial donation will enable many disabled people and their families to become mobile. The Motability scheme opens up the scope for hobbies, education and employment, helping disabled people to improve their quality of life immensely."
