DRIVERS in Burnham now have cleaner cars, and not just thanks to the non-stop rain.

The RNLI held its annual SOS ‘Soap Our Saloons’ car wash on Friday to raise money for their lifeboat operations.

Even the weather co-operated as the sun helped dry over 70 vehicles that were washed; raising £695.

Lifeboat operations manager Matt Davies said: “Many thanks to all who supported our fundraising day, and a very special thank you to operators of the car wash next door who closed for the morning, enabling us to maximize the collection.

“Our lifeboat station volunteers gave their usual high level of commitment, and money raised will go towards keeping the lifeboats afloat.”
