Cazoo raises £100,000 for charity in 2020

…and pledges to double that amount in 2021

Cazoo, the UK’s leading online used car retailer, which makes buying a car as simple and seamless as buying any other product online, is proud to announce that it has raised £100,000 for charity in 2020.

Throughout the year Cazoo has raised funds through events including a 10,000 mile ‘lockdown challenge’ which saw over 200 Cazoo team members cycle, run and walk over 10,000 miles during May to raise £10,000 for NHS Heroes. Cazoo and its team have donated a further £30,000 to a variety of charities including Cazoo’s charity partner, Mind.

Cazoo has also pledged £1,000 to Everton in the Community and The Aston Villa Foundation for every goal scored by the respective team in the Premier League this season. As a result of their on-pitch successes so far, this charitable initiative is expected to bring in at least £60,000 for the Everton and Aston Villa charities by the end of the year. 

Cazoo is pioneering the shift to online car buying in the UK and owns and fully reconditions its cars before offering them for sale on its website for home delivery or collection from one of its 12 customer centres in as little as 72 hours. Every Cazoo car comes with a full 7-day money back guarantee and a comprehensive 90-day warranty.

Alex Chesterman OBE, Founder & CEO of Cazoo, said: “Our team are passionate about helping others and we are delighted to have been able to support our various charity partners with over £100,000 in our first year. This has been a particularly tough year for many and we are especially proud to have been able to support the essential national work of the NHS Heroes and Mind and the local community efforts of the Everton and Aston Villa charities. We are committed to doubling the amount we raise in 2021.”
