Rumwell Farm Shop is hoping that their fundraiser on Saturday 21st May will result in lots of drivers turning up to have their cars cleaned for two good causes.
The shop owners have teamed up with the 1st Wellington Scout Group to raise money for both Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and the scout group.
Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the farm shop, said: “We hope lots of people take advantage of the car wash. Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance is our Charity of the Year and we’re delighted that the scouts were happy to come on board and collect some money themselves.”
The car wash will be held in the Rumwell Farm Shop car park and will cost £4 per vehicle with £2 going to the Wellington Scouts and £2 to the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance.
The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance launched in March 2000 and has flown more than 10,900 missions, many of them life-saving.
Its operational costs are more than £2 million a year and the approximate cost per mission is £2,500. With public support it is also able to purchase specialist equipment to aid paramedics’ training and help save lives across the two counties.
Dave Belfield, Executive Chairman at the 1st Wellington Scout Group, said: “We’re looking forward to the Car Wash and hope people in the area get behind the fundraiser by coming along with their dirty vehicles. The scouts are ready to work as a team to make each car sparkle.
“The money raised will be going towards improving the scouts’ camping and activities equipment, benefiting all age groups across Scouts, Cubs and Beavers.”
