The local industrial cleaning company, Community Clean, held a charity car washing event on Friday 2nd May and raised £500 in just four hours.

Twenty members of Community Clean’s staff formed a human chain which jet washed and sponged cars as they started arriving from 11am.

Sharon Parker, Head of Sales and Marketing at Community Clean, said: “It was such a fantastic day; everyone pitched in whether it was selling our homemade cakes and lemonade or getting stuck in with a shammy leather.

“We had no idea we’d manage to do so many cars in that time so a huge thanks to everyone who joined us and generously donated.”

As part of Enchanced’s, the Poole based IT specialists, 20/20 charity challenge, Community Clean aim to raise £1,000 for The Boo Charity which helps disadvantaged children in Africa.

The Community Clean team will hope to complete their fundraising target by undertaking the 7km army assault course, ‘The Peanuts Challenge,’ in June.

The Peanuts Challenge includes affectionately nicknamed obstacles such as ‘Hell River’, ‘Tunnel Rats’ and ‘The Bomb Crater’.

Russell Hicks, the Founder of The Boo Charity, said: “The Community Clean team have fully embraced the 20/20 Challenge and completely understand what it will mean to raise this money for Boo and the children in Africa.”

Community Clean are one of the 20 companies that are taking part in Enchanced’s 20/20 charity challenge.

In celebration of their 20th anniversary, Enhanced asked 20 of their local clients to help them raise £20,000 for The Boo Charity.
