The Christmas Cracker Appeal will get an amazing boost if a business backing the campaign reaches its target of raising £5,000.
The appeal to send 10 terminally ill children to Lapland at Christmas, under the umbrella of the Journal Children’s Fund, has touched the hearts of Lance Coaten and Graham Limbrick, directors of Witham Garage, in Beler Way, Melton Mowbray.
So keen are they to support the cause, they plan to undergo a very painful transformation.
On Saturday, June 8, the pair will have their legs, backs and chests waxed, dress up as a pair of tarts, take a zumba class in the showroom...and wash cars wearing a mankini.
Joining them - washing cars in bikinis - are Rachel Coaten, Hannah Jasinski, Alison Watson (who is also leading the zumba class) and Caroline Lock.
Lance, 41, lives in Grantham. He said: “We’ve raised money before for Children in Need, but you don’t see where the money goes.
“I’ve lived in Grantham all my life and a lot of the staff come from Grantham. It’s a good cause to get behind.”
Lance and Graham, 45, are urging people to go along to the showroom between 10am and 4pm and take part in the fun. You can browse a selection of stalls and enjoy refreshments while your motor gets a make-over. It will be a real family effort, with youngsters manning the stalls.
Go along and you can get a car wash and leather, plus full safety, summer and tyre check for a £25 donation.
There will also be a raffle.
