A charity car wash event has raised £750 for two young brothers who suffer from a rare degenerative condition.

Staff at Warners Printers, in Bourne, spent two days scrubbing cars, vans and lorries in aid of its charity of the year, Forbenandsam, set up by the parents of Ben and Sam Rogers, who live in the town.

The brothers, aged nine and five, suffer from Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which causes muscles to weaken and waste over time, leading to increasing disability.

The car wash was the latest in a series of events planned by Warners staff to support Ben and Sam.

Warners Printers staff are currently running a summer holiday raffle with prizes of a week-long stay in a holiday home in Scarborough, a weekend in a flat in central Cambridge and a £250 voucher for a pub stay in Norfolk. Tickets, which cost £5 per strip or three for £10, are now on sale at Warners’ reception and will be available until 3pm on Friday, July 8.
