Since taking early retirement at the beginning of 2015 I have been operating daily throughout the region collecting donations from people who are unable to get to their choice of charity shop with their donations maybe through lack of transport or just physically unable, and those charities who are unable to collect donations themselves.

I operate full time 5 or 6 days a week, I cover all operating costs of my van including fuel and take no payment from any donor or charity.

In 2015 I carried around 85 tons of donations, in 2016 I'm on target for at least 120 tons!

Unfortunately my van is now quite aged as I used it for my business prior to retirement and has just failed the mot quite badly to the point that repair is unviable. The current mot expires on the 24th December.

I am therefore raising funds to replace it with a newer vehicle solely for the purpose of continuing my charity collections, it is hoped enough can be raised to secure a vehicle of sufficient quality to continue this service for the next 5 years - otherwise I will be forced to cease operating when the mot on my current van expires.

Please help if you can, any donation will be most gratefully received.

Thank you.
