Automotive charity BEN has benefited from schemes organised by Nissan UK and Independent Motor Auctions (IMA).
The IMA initiative, launched during September, saw buyers invited to donate an extra £1 on top of the purchase price to go towards the charity.
Previously many auction houses donated through the BackingBen scheme which had £1 donated by the vendor from each sale.
This is the first time buyers have been asked to contribute and Justin Lane managing director of IMA said he hoped to run the scheme again in spring.
Nissan collaborated with industry recruiter Perfect Placement UK to supply a BEN liveried Nissan Qashqai to events manager Kelly Neal.
The car was prepared by Marshalls Nissan Cambridge and the lease will be covered by Perfect Placement UK.
