Pop-Up Car Wash Raises Money For Guides Trip

The girls operated a car wash outside the Methodist Church on Saturday afternoon.

Each car was cleaned for a fee of £5.

Guide Leader Lesley Thomas says the cash is needed to fund their planned trip to a camp in Hertfordshire next August. It’s likely to cost around £150 for each girl, which means they have a lot of fundraising to do beforehand, says Lesley.

She says this fundraising event worked so well that the girls intend taking the event to the off-islands next year.
