Children raise £280 for charity by washing teachers’ cars

PUPILS at Peppard Primary School washed cars to raise money for charity.

PUPILS at Peppard Primary School washed cars to raise money for charity.

Members of the school council organised the day where £280 was collected for the MS Trust.

The children chose the charity following a visit to the school by Dave Middleton, a member of the Atlantic Lions, who have just rowed the Atlantic Ocean in aid of the trust.

The four-man crew took almost two months to complete the 3,000-mile voyage from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua.

Pupils washed 25 cars belonging to parents, governors and staff over two days. Headteacher Nick Steele said: “We did a car wash two years ago. This time every pupil washed at least two cars and I was involved myself.



“After the assembly wth Dave, the children said they wanted to do something for the MS Trust. It’s a fantastic amount of money to raise. I would like to say well done to the pupils. We definitely could get some repeat customers!”

Mr Middleton will visit the school in the next few weeks to tell pupils about the row. Mr Steele said: “It’s a good way to bookend a nice activity.”
