  1. Buckets
  2. Sponges
  3. Car Shampoo (ideally with wax)
  4. Brush (for brushing off dirt on car wheels)
  5. Buckets of Water (or ideally a hose) to wash off car shampoo

Happiness ensures when driving a freshly cleaned and washed car.

This is a brilliant fundraiser that all ages can get involved in and make a positive difference both for the car owner and financially for us. 

Small Scale – Great way to get kids involved

  1. Set a date, knock on your neighbours doors/or pop a flyer through offering your car washing services for the future set date with a suggested donation amount.
  2. On the date you choose knock on your neighbours doors to remind them that you are washing cars that morning/afternoon and ask them to let you know if they would like their cars cleaned. 

Larger Scale

  1. Set a date and find a location for the car wash that has all the necessary amenities. (Tap to refill bucket, ability to use hose, location with lots of visibility).
  2. Encourage people to volunteer, if you’re doing the event for a long period then have people sign up to different time-slots. Create a list of roles (Car washers, cash collectors, greeters). 
  3. Purchase the materials, or see if people will donate.
  4. Advertise – poster on lamp posts. Social media and any other areas local residents will view.
  5. On the day – ask volunteers to come 30 minutes early to help set up. Have fun cleaning cars and engaging with the customers. 
  6. Optional Extra – consider having a drinks and nibbles stand next to a seating area for customers whilst they are waiting. A great way to make some extra money.
