Washing cars to buy an ‘angel’

A group of seven Dunstable students on a three-week National Citizen Service course have raised more than £200 to help pay for an ‘angel’ at Keech Hospice Care.

The teenagers – all pupils at Manshead Upper School or Queensbury Academy – donned Keech T-shirts and took part in a charity car wash at Apex Business Centre in Boscombe Road.

Spokesperson Natalie Kennington said: “Almost all of us have had relations who’ve been looked after at Keech.

“Angels provide 24 hour care, which enables people who are dying and their families to be cared for in complete comfort.

“The dad of one of our team members bought all the cleaning stuff so we could give all the money we raised to the hospice. People were very generous – one woman gave us money even though she didn’t want her car cleaned.”
