Frogs Island 4×4 get ‘Soggy for Money’ for Comic Relief 2013!Posted on: March 18, 2013 by megan
Frogs Island 4×4 held a day long Charity Car Wash on Friday 15th March, all in aid of Comic Relief! All members of staff, technicians and managers, were out in force holding buckets and sponges, ready to clean, polish and buff, as well as offer free vehicle car checks to raise buckets of cash for this fantastic cause. There was a suggested donation of £5 for a fabulous wash down, or £10 if you fancied a complete clean out!
They were joined by Oxfordshire based Secret Pizza Society who served up a selection of delicious stone baked pizzas from their mobile wood fired oven including a ‘Red Nose Day Special’ which went down very well (I could have eaten two!)
Milton Hill House Hotel also joined in the fun, and was good enough to supply free hot drinks for everyone, which we needed as it was rather chilly! Milton Hill House ran a raffle with lots of prizes including a VIP stay at their hotel, a free Frogs Island 4×4 oil and filter service & lots of Terrafirma goodies. It was fantastic to see local businesses like these ones coming together to do something ‘soggy for money’!
Frogs Island 4×4 also were also visited by Land Rover World editor Simon Ward-Hastelow, BBC Radio Oxford, and BBC Oxford who filmed all of the guys working and cleaning hard!
One of my personal highlights of the day was seeing Frogs Island 4×4’s very own parts advisor, Andrew Leach dressed as a frog whilst he cleaned cars, posed for cameras, and kept everybody smiling!
The day was a definite success; altogether the team raised around £340 which will go straight to Comic Relief! Well done to everyone who got involved!
This year, 2013, marks the 25th Anniversary of Red Nose Day which since 1985 has been able to raise over £600m , helping change the lives of people in need both in the UK and Africa.
