STALYBRIDGE Auto Salvage (S.A.S.) are continuing to play an active role in community life.
When Anthony Parkinson and Paul Hallas, joint owners of the vehicle de-polluting and dismantling facility on Robinson Street, heard White Band College, Dukinfield, needed a vehicle they were only too happy to help.
They had learned about it from PCs Greg Howard and Tony Lawton who are schools’ officers for Ashton, Dukinfield, Mossley and Stalybridge.
The 2003 Nissan will be used to help teach students with a passion for cars to learn about their mechanics.
“We were more than happy to help when we heard that the college needed a car,” explained Anthony who added they have helped in the local community previously.
S.A.S., which operates throughout Tameside, Glossop and Stockport, has been in existence for 27 years with Anthony and Paul taking over the running from their parents in the family business.
In 2019, they handled 3,000 vehicles which include MOT failures and ones which have been scrapped for other reasons.
PCs Howard and Lawton work with local schools to form partnerships and change perceptions on police.
