A GROUP of schoolgirls gave up their free time over the Easter break to wash their neighbours’ cars for charity.

Elleanor Barnes-Foggon, 11, Millie Bailey, 12, Abbie Stevenson, nine, Aliyah Hurst-Amos, eight and 11-year-old Mia Hyland, who all live in Monarch Gardens, St Leonards, spent three days washing 16 cars and generous owners helped them raise an impressive £115 for Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.

Elleanor, who goes to Silverdale School, said she and her four friends washed cars in their street and in neighbouring Kingsley Close.

She said: “We were all really bored so we decided to club together and something fun for charity. One of the cars we washed we did twice and everyone was very grateful and generous with their money.”
