Charity Car Wash in Aid of Dove House Hospice


10:54 am

Students at The Institute of Advanced Vehicle Technologies held a charity car wash at Cannon Street on Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd June.

Students on the level 1 & 2 Vehicle Accident Repair Paint Principles and level 1 Automotive Maintenance Operations courses got stuck in, cleaning more than 20 cars across the two days to raise awareness and funds for Dove House Hospice.

The charity has been caring for people in Hull and East Yorkshire for almost 40 years now, caring for people at the end of their lives, providing therapies to help people with life limiting illnesses improve their quality of life, or giving much needed bereavement support to grieving families.

In total, the students - along with staff at The Institute of Advanced Vehicle Technologies - helped to raise an impressive total of £248.33.

Reflecting on the achievement, event organiser and course tutor, Jason Surgey said: "It was great to see our students come together and work hard across two days in order to raise funds for what is a great cause. It was a non-stop effort from everyone involved. We're delighted with the success of the fundraiser and hopefully it will inspire staff and students to organise more wonderful charity fundraising events like this in the future."
