The Chairman of Cornwall Council helps raise money for Young Carers in Cornwall.

The first fundraiser took place in Tuesday 28th October for the Chairman of Cornwall Council’s chosen charity, Young Carers. This fundraiser was by means of a car wash at County Hall, Truro.

The car-washers included volunteers from
Children’s Services, Action for Children – who are commissioned to run Kernow Young Carers – Young Carers themselves, staff from a Daycare Centre in Liskeard, firemen from Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service and of course the Chairman of Cornwall Council, Councillor John Wood.

During the event, the eager car-washers washed 58 cars and raised £657.84 (£526.27 cash and £131.57 gift aid). This is a fantastic amount raised for the first fundraising event.

Well done to all who gave up their time and to those who gave money to have their car washed to raise money for this very worthwhile cause.
