Making a splash for charity

The team from Dartford Funeral Service have been making a splash to raise money for three charities: The New Hope Animal Rescue, Ellenor Lions Hospice and The Salvation Army.

Debi Runeckles, Sarah McCabe, Jason Howitt, Martin Purkis, Bill Wyatt and Matthew Day spent the day cleaning cars inside and out and raised nearly £300.

Drivers had the option to choose which charity to support and could even purchase homemade doggy biscuits baked by Debi and Sarah, with all funds raised on the day being donated.

Debi said: “We had an absolutely brilliant turn out. The weather was glorious, and we couldn’t believe that we were non-stop all day.

“People who came enjoyed refreshments whilst they waited and loved that they had the option to purchase homemade doggy treats, we had none left at the end of the day. We are so pleased with how much money we raised and hope that this is something we can do again soon!”
