Volunteers from Christ Royal Church invite drivers whose cars need a good scrub to stop by the place of worship at Chatham Place at 1-3pm.

The car washes are free for all people living and working in the borough.

Communications Manager for Christ Royal Church, Ola Adegbenro, said: “ We want to show love and emphasise more on the community spirit, letting people know we are here to help them especially during this time of global pandemic where a lot of people may have been affected one way or the other.

You may also want to watch:

“It is also our way of spreading hope and the love of God to those around us. There is no religious requirement for this, we just want to be a blessing to those in the borough.”

The free car wash is part of a new initiative of giving back to the local community.

The church also gives out free Chrismas care packages every year which includes everything needed for a Christmas dinner including the turkey.

The free car wash is a new initiative and will launch on August 22 at 25-27 Chatham Place.
