Lincoln Peugeot dealership to hold charity car wash for Children in Need

A newly refurbished Peugeot dealership will host a car wash event on Saturday, November 7 to raise money BBC Children in Need.

Members of the public are invited to Abacus Lincoln on High Street between 10am-3pm to have their dirty cars cleaned by the team for just £5, all of which will be donated to the charity.

Other activities are also set to take place on the day to entertain people of all ages, including a free face painter, colouring competitions, games, prizes and a special appearance by Pudsey.

The dealership has recently undergone a £500,000 makeover and a new showroom refurbishment that will display a wide range of Peugeot models.

Jason Harvey, Dealer Principal, said: “The team is really passionate about engaging with the local community, and what better way to get the public involved than by hosting a car-wash with Pudsey?

“It’s great to mark our dealership refurbishment with such an exciting event and all we can ask is that the people of Lincoln get involved and bring their cars down to raise money for a fantastic cause.”

The Peugeot and BBC Children in Need partnership has spanned three years, with the car manufacturer raising over £1 million for the charity to date.

Neil Moscrop, Peugeot UK Brand Director, said: “Our BBC Children in Need car washes have always been received so well on a local level in recent years and we’re urging as many people as possible to get down to Abacus Lincoln to ‘Get Sudsey with Pudsey’.

“After breaking through the £1 million barrier last year, the team is even more motivated to keep pushing for donations and encouraging as many people as possible to support such a worthy cause.”
