News: CarShop Cardiff unveils new local charity to support

The team at CarShop Cardiff have recently selected a new local charity to support in line with the CarShop Cares programme.

Papyrus is a charity local to the Cardiff store which aims to prevent young suicide.

Their mission is: “We exist to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives by shattering the stigma around suicide and equipping young people and their communities with the skills to recognise and respond to suicidal behaviour.”

Andrew Smith, Brand Experience Manager at CarShop Cardiff said: “As part of our commitment to raise money and awareness for local causes, we are proud and excited to announce that we will be supporting Papyrus through our endless charity efforts this year. 

“Colleagues at the Cardiff branch have a special connection to this charity. As a store, and family, we feel strongly to raise awareness for not only men, but women to speak out when in need as there will always be someone there to listen.” 

The charity will be supported by the CarShop Cares programme and the pink coin process.

The pink coin process donates £1 for every car sold to the CarShop Cares programme. Customers get a choice of donating their £1 to a local charity that is hand-picked by staff or CarShop Cares’ national charity.

Andrew continued: “We cannot wait to start this new journey with Papyrus and our promise is to give as much dedication to them, as we have their predecessors.”
