Charity car wash in Scaynes Hill – 13th Feb

The garage and SPAR shop in Scaynes Hill is open for some special business this month. On Thursday 13th February they will be removing the price tag from the car wash and making it available in exchange for any donation to Cancer Research UK. 

The owners, brothers Jay & Gunvant Patel, have been running the event annually since 2009 when they sent £345 to the charity. Last year the machine washed more than 120 cars and raised over £1,500. “Every donation really does make a difference,” Jay said. “Some people pay a lot and others pay a little but together we raise a large sum of money to make someone else’s life better.” 

The garage opens at 6am and the offer continues throughout the whole day until 11pm when they close. Customers can also take part in the raffle for a Hamper worth £50 when they buy tickets for just £1. Jay and Gunvant are also giving away free copies of The Mid Sussex Times during the day too.
