Charity car wash

We’re inviting people to support a scout group and St. Margaret’s Hospice by having their car washed at a fundraiser being held in our car park next month (May, 2017).

We have teamed up with the 1st Wellington Scout Group to raise money for the charity and the scout group on Saturday, May 13 from 10am until 4pm.

Kayla Fitzjohn, Deli Assistant at Rumwell Farm Shop, gets ready for the car wash.

Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the farm shop, said: “As our car washes were a great success last year we decided to host another two this year. We hope lots of people take advantage of the car wash as it is being held in aid of two great local causes.

“St. Margaret’s Hospice is one of our charities of the year and we’re delighted that the scouts were happy once again to come on board for the fundraiser and also collect some money for their activities.”

The car wash will be held in the Rumwell Farm Shop car park and will cost £4 per vehicle with £2 going to the Wellington Scouts and £2 to St. Margaret’s Hospice.

St. Margaret’s Hospice as a charity, has been at the heart of Somerset’s community, for more than 37 years, delivering high quality, responsive and compassionate care to patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness.

Last year St. Margaret’s cared for more than 3,200 people across Somerset. To provide this care they need to raise in excess of £7.5 million. Without the generous support of the community, thousands of people facing the challenge of a life-limiting illness would struggle to receive the care and support they need.

Dave Belfield, Executive Chairman at the 1st Wellington Scout Group, said: “We’re delighted to once again link with Rumwell Farm Shop for this fundraising car wash. We hope lots of people in the area get behind the event and pop along with their dirty vehicles. The scouts will be raring to go to make each car sparkle.

“The money raised will be going towards improving the scouts camping and activities equipment benefiting all age groups across Scouts, Cubs and Beavers.”

The car wash will take place on Saturday, May 13 at Rumwell Farm Shop from 10am until 4pm.
