Danny McLaughlin and Craig Halsall, owners of Pristine Car Wash in Leyland Road, Penwortham, decided to hold a family fun day at their premises, as a way of “giving something back to the community.”

In total £1,200 was raised during the event, which included activities such as a football shoot-out, children’s games, a tombola and raffle as well as a cake stall.

Danny said: “It was a really good day all round. We had great weather, and raised £1,200, which is a big help to the charity.

“Me and Craig were brought up in Penwortham, and after turning a derelict piece of land into a business, we’ve been really well supported and have created eight new jobs.

“We decided it would be nice to get involved in the local community and help give back a local charity.”

He added: “We also want to thank everyone who came along and the local business who donated prizes.”

The Katy Homes Trust raises awareness and money for research into brain tumours. It was set up in memory of 10-year-old Penwortham schoolgirl Katy Holmes, who died of the condition in 2012.
