Charity benefits from car wash and go
5:00pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in News
TEENAGER Katie McFarlane took her mind off her GCSE results by cleaning cars in a charity wash.
The car wash was carried out by Bicester members of the National Citizen Service at the Bicester fire station on Tuesday.
It raised more than £200 for Oxfordshire Mind, the charity chosen by the group.
Katie, 16, from Bicester, a pupil at Cooper School, said: “I thought it was really good and lots of people came down so we cleaned lots of cars.
“There were ten of us involved and we probably cleaned about 40 cars. I definitely felt rewarded and I think I was good at doing it.”
NCS is run by Oxfordshire County Council and gives 16 to 17-year-olds the opportunity to contribute to their local community during the summer holidays.
