Scaynes Hill Service station has launched it’s annual raffle in aid of Cancer Research today where it is challenging customers to beat last year’s record amount raised.
It is all part of a charity drive run each year on February 13 by the Jay Patel from the BP station.
On the day before Valentine’s Day, visitors can get a free machine car wash as well as that day’s edition of the Mid Sussex Times in exchange for a donation to Cancer Research.
The raffle also contributes to the sum raised and for just £1 a ticket customers could win a top prize of £50 worth of shopping.
Mr Patel, 54, hopes the generosity of his customers will surpass last year’s total of more than £1500 raised for the charity.
He said: “All we want to do is beat cancer and make life better.
“Everybody has been touched by cancer.
“We need to beat it together, it’s all about being together.”
The Mid Sussex Time is proud to have supported the event since it started in 2009.
Scaynes Hill services will be open from 6am to 11pm on February 13, with the offer of a free paper and car wash available all day.
