Funeral directors raise over £2000 with charity car wash

HARP Funeral Services has raised over £2,000 for a local child with a charity car wash.

Mia was diagnosed with high risk neuroblastoma in May 2016, when she was four years old. Mia’s family would like her to access a clinical trial as additional cancer therapy in the hope that it will help prevent a dangerous relapse.

Director of HARP Funeral Services Carwyn Iles and son Dafydd, wanted to do something to help when they heard about her family’s goal to raise funds for Mia to travel to America to access the trial.

In spring 2017, HARP Funeral Services held a charity Car Wash at the Funeral Home, Pant Road, Dowlais. Everyone at HARP Funeral Services was keen to get involved and helped out for the car wash. All of the staff and even their families volunteered their time and efforts.

Dafydd said; “we had a great response from the staff, and even our Autoglym sales rep offered to donate products when he heard about the charity car wash for Mia”.

Over one hundred cars turned up on the day, including Mia with her family, and at some points during the day cars were queuing out on to the main road. The car wash was a huge success, and thanks to the generosity of those who came a massive £2,100 was raised on the day.
