Colleagues at a funeral home in Rose Green are dusting off their rags ready for a charity car wash on Saturday 18 August.
Cars and vans of all shapes and sizes are invited to Southern Co-op’s Funeralcare in Rose Green to help raise funds for The Bognor Regis Lions Club – Wenceslas Appeal.
The Bognor Regis Lions Club – Wenceslas Appeal is the funeral home’s chosen local cause as part of Southern Co-op’s community engagement programme ‘Love Your Neighbourhood’.
The Southern Co-op’s community engagement programme ‘Love Your Neighbourhood’ addresses four key social themes for promoting: ‘Greener’, ‘Healthier’, ‘Safer’, and ‘More Inclusive’ neighbourhoods.
Lindsey Booker, Funeral Co-ordinator at the Rose Green funeral home, said: “It might seem strange thinking about it now when we are in the middle of an extremely hot summer but the Wenceslas Appeal supports those that are going to have to make a choice between food or heat this winter.
“So we are hoping to raise enough money through the upcoming charity car wash to make a real difference to people’s lives in our community.”
The charity car wash will take place on Saturday 18 August from 10am to 1pm at the funeral home at 6 Nyetimber Lane, Rose Green. Small cars will be asked for a £5 donation and large cars/vans will be asked for a £10 donation.
