Senior care assistant at the nursing and residential home, Polly Noble, came up with fund raising idea, and persuaded about 10 others to lend a hand during the four hour cleaning session.

Manager Henry Mutambo said: “I was delighted that staff and volunteers went out of their way to extend their care for the residents, by spending their free time to raise this money.

“It was a really good event, and we want to thank the local community, especially the farming community who allowed us to use their yard for staff a relatives parking, to free up our site for the car wash.”

The money raised will be used to provide entertainment and trips for residents.
