The 1st Wellington Scout Group will soon be out with their sponges and buckets washing cars once again to raise money for Escape Support Group and the scouts.
The car wash takes place on Saturday 16th September at Rumwell Farm Shop from 10am until 4pm and will cost £4 per vehicle with £2 going to the Wellington Scouts and £2 to Escape Support Group.
Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the farm shop, said: “We hope lots of people take advantage and support the car wash as it is being held for two great local causes. We’re so pleased that the scouts were happy to come on board again for the fundraiser and also collect money for their activities.”
“Escape Support Group is one of our charities of the year and has been supporting families who have a child, or children, with disabilities or specific individual needs in the Somerset area for 17 years.”
Escape’s main aim is to provide fun activities, allowing children to experience a positive childhood where they are integrated fully, and able to share experiences that will enhance and enrich their lives, which other children and families may take for granted.
Sarah Phippen, Team Leader at Escape Support Group, said: “Escape depends on the support of others and we very much appreciate what Anne and the staff at Rumwell Farm Shop have been able to achieve so far this year.
“We’re also very grateful to the 1st Wellington Scout Group for sharing their profits from the car wash with us. It’s great to see young people fundraising to help others who may be less fortunate than themselves. I hope there are lots of dirty cars around on the day.”
Dave Belfield, Executive Chairman at the 1st Wellington Scout Group, said: “We’re looking forward to attending our second car wash of the year at Rumwell Farm Shop. We hope people in the area once again get behind the fundraiser and pop along with their dirty vehicles. The scouts are raring to go and ready to make each car squeaky clean.
“The money raised will be going towards improving the scouts’ camping and activities equipment benefitting all age groups across Scouts, Cubs and Beavers.”
