Cars gleamed and charity buckets were full to the brim when St Giles Primary School held a car wash day at the weekend.

Children raised £200 for school funds by washing 40 cars on Saturday, July 2.

PTFA member Miranda Morton said: “It went brilliantly and it’s great that we raised so much money, we’re really happy.

“The children were doing the washing and they all had a whale of a time.

“We had a lot of cars come down and we’d like to thank everyone for supporting us. It’s something that we’d definitely look at doing again as it was so popular.”

Car owners paid £5 for their cars to be given the once over by the school’s teams of young car washers.

Drivers were treated to a cup of tea and a biscuit by PTFA members and pupils while they waited for their vehicles to be washed.

Miranda Morton added: “We had a big stereo system up there and we were playing music and we were dancing around all day.

“We’re always looking for new members of the PTFA so if anybody is interested in getting involved they can get in touch through the school.”
