Our charity car wash is back for 2023 on Wednesday 5th July to mark the 75th birthday of the NHS. We’ll be digging out our buckets and sponges, ready to get our hands dirty making your cars sparkling, all in aid of Weston Park Cancer Charity. The car wash runs around the outside of our building on Lydgate Lane. You’ll be able to pull in and drive around the stations, from wheel brushing & jet washing to shammy leather drying. Your car is sure to come out looking shiny and clean!
You’ll also be able to treat yourself to homemade cakes and savoury snacks, along with hot and cold drinks with all proceeds going to Weston Park.
Last year our charity car wash raised over £1400 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity, it was a fantastic day and all our staff worked really hard washing cars, selling cakes and tombola tickets, well done team! We’re gearing up to do it all again, and we’re hoping to raise even more money this year and smash our total from last year!
This year we’re excited to announce that along with our charity car wash, we’ll also be raising money through our tombola to fund a defibrillator for the local community. We feel this is a fantastic cause that will be of great benefit to our local area. We’ll have some amazing prizes up for grabs on the day, so come along and have a go!
We've had some lovely prizes donated to our tombola from local businesses, we can't wait to see how much money we can raise on the day to fund a defibrillator for our local community. Here's a run down of the prizes available:
Watch this space and we will update it with prizes from our wonderfully generous fellow Sheffield businesses! If you'd like to donate a prize to this fantastic cause please email us at email@example.com
Did you know that there are more than 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests every year in the UK? Sadly, fewer than one in 10 people survive this. Immediate CPR and defibrillation can more than double the chances of survival. Having a defibrillator close by is important, that’s why we are working to raise money to provide one in for our local community.
Wednesday 5th July 2023 is the 75th Birthday of the NHS, so we have chosen to host our charity car wash on this date to mark this historic occasion and raise money for our local cancer charity Weston Park.
The NHS was founded in 1948, the first universal health system available to everyone, free at the point of delivery. Many notable events have taken place during the 75 years of the NHS, including:
“Weston Park Cancer Charity is here to face cancer with you. Our services, advice, therapies and support are for you and the people close to you, helping everyone to live with and beyond cancer.
The funds we raise also support vital, pioneering research and clinical trials led by the exceptional medical experts at Weston Park Cancer Centre.
It’s our job to care in every sense for our patients and their families. Our help is free, and we’re here for you, together at every step.”
Weston Park Cancer Charity is just a few minutes walk from our office in Sheffield. We love to support local charities, and this one is close to a lot of our team’s hearts. We are hoping to raise as much money for them as we can through our charity car wash and bake sale.
Our charity car wash 2023 and defibrillator fundraiser tombola will take place at our office Albreda House, on Lydgate Lane in Sheffield, S10 5FH on Wednesday 5th July. Come along and join in the fun!
