Free carwash and Middy in Scaynes Hill today for donations to Cancer Research

Scaynes Hill Service Station on Lewes Road is challenging its customers beat last year’s record donations for Cancer Research today.

Each year on the day before Valentine’s Day, February 13, the service station offers free machine car washes in exchange for a donation to the cancer fighting charity.

The Mid Sussex Times is proud to have supported the event since it began in 2009, and anyone who makes a donation today will also receives a free copy of the Middy, regardless of whether they have had a car wash or not.

Jay Patel, 54, who runs the station and event hopes 2014 will prove even more successful than last year.

“When we started our customers donated £345. Last year the machine washed over 120 cars and we raised more than £1500 for Cancer Research.

“Some people pay a little, others pay a lot, but together we have raised a large sum of money to make someone else’s life better – that’s my aim. Let’s beat cancer together.”

Scaynes Hill service station is open from 6am to 11pm offering free car washes all day.
