REVVING up for the World Cup, a tyre firm in Rugby is hosting a charity event this weekend.
Selecta Tyre in Railway Terrace is holding a car wash to raise funds for Myton Hospice on Friday and Saturday (September 18 and 19).
The company, which has already raised £1,000 for the charity, will also give away mini rugby balls and giant foam hands to coincide with the tournament, which starts on Friday (September 18).
On Saturday, staff from Selecta will be joined by the glamorous Pirelli Girls who will offer the chance to win £1,000 worth of Pirelli tyres in a prize draw.
Selecta Tyre Director Nick Henshall said: “The Myton Hospice team do fantastic work within our community which is why we wanted to support them. All funds raised during the car wash will help this fantastic cause so please come down on Friday or Saturday to show your support, and get a free rugby-inspired gift.”
Rosie Houghton from Myton Hospice said: “We are delighted Selecta Tyre has decided to support our charity and the £1,000 raised already is going to do so much to support our patients. We hope the car wash is a great success and look forward to putting all the funds raised to good use at our hospices.”
Prices will be £5 for a car and £7 for larger vehicles, with all proceeds going to Myton Hospice.
