Area 6 Covid-19 Support group raise hundreds at the charity car wash
A support group based in Whitehaven has raised over £900 on Monday (25th) for their remembrance garden initiative.
The event was held at the Copeland Pool and Fitness Centre on Hensingham.
The group estimate that over 120 cars visited the car wash over the course of the day, which enabled them to raise over £900 towards their remembrance garden initiative that they are planning to deliver this summer.
The support group would like to say a big thank-you to everyone who made the socially distanced event a great success.
One of the lead organisers Yvonne Mahaffy said: “It was amazing to see all the volunteers working together to raise money for a great cause and I look forward to planning future events
“The leadership team would like to say a great big thank-you and well done to all the volunteers who turned up and put lots of effort in, as the event simply wouldn’t have been possible without all of our volunteers.
“With some mentions to Maxine Ellerton, The Silly Goose, Sizzling Simons and Sandra Chester for supplying amazing food and treats to keep everyone in high spirits and also a big thank-you to Amie Meloy at Slimming World, Nick Little from ASDA, Nicholas Sharma from Nisa, IMO, Morrisons, B+H Motors and TMS supplying car wash essentials.
“I would like to make a special mention of the following without whom the event would not have been possible; Alan Burns, Maxine Ellerton, Philip Lowery, Matt Wils, Kaiden Meloy and finally the whole Area 6 network for mucking in, providing supplies and generally keeping things moving in a safe and cautious way.”
