Businessman Martin Balmond organised the event, which ran from 8am to 2pm last Saturday, along with around 20 helpers who worked in shifts.

His wife Alison, who was also a helper, said: "From the moment the group started, until they finished, they didn't stop. It was a very busy and successful day.

"Everybody was very generous. We would like to thank everybody who helped and to all those who had their cars washed and generously supported it.
