THURROCK Council is supporting National Liftshare Week – 6 to 11 October – to identify potential car sharers and promote the benefits of sharing a car to save time and money as well as the benefit it can have on congestion and the environment.
The council will be promoting car sharing to the public at Grays Shopping Centre on Wednesday, 9 October between 9am and 5pm.
Anybody who is currently registered on Thurrock’s liftshare website or who registers between now and 11 October will automatically be placed in a prize draw to win a comprehensive car valet service.
There are 25 valet prizes on offer.
Thurrock Council’s car share system can be found at www.thurrock.gov.uk/travel or alternatively come to Grays Shopping Centre on the 9 October to find out more.
Sharing a car can save on fuel use and reduce CO2 and is also a great way to make friends. The savings over a year can be substantial as well as saving on other things like vehicle depreciation.
