Fundraising in the car park.

19th June 2012

An eager crew of Atlantis swimmers held a car washing fund raising event at Pavilions Horsham on Saturday 16th June to raise funds towards the swimmers training camp being held in Lanzarote in October.

The event was very successful and the group of 15 children worked non stop cleaning around 40 cars in 4 hours after completing a 2.5 hour swim at 6am that morning.

Organiser Allison Hartley would like to thank all the parents who assisted, the parents who came out especially to support the event and get their cars cleaned and the lovely parent who bought coffees and biscuits for the adult helpers.

The event would not have been so smooth running without the help and support of Horsham District Council, Pavilions staff and h2no car valeting company. Originally h2no (based in Swan Walk Car Park) were going to supply their eco friendly waterless car cleaning materials but due to the unpredictable weather Atlantis had to resort to traditional methods. Despite this Paul from h2no still came along and helped with quality control!

The children raised 172 towards the target and are hoping to hold another car washing day soon.
