Charles Hurst Cleans Up for BBC Children in Need

Charles Hurst Group will have buckets and sponges at the ready as it prepares to help raise funds for BBC Children in Need. All donations from its Big Wash event on Friday Nov 17 will go to help disadvantaged young people across Northern Ireland.

Pudsey Bear and the full Charles Hurst Belfast team will transform the car retailer’s Boucher Road Complex for the Big Wash, which will see six bays and 30 cleaners dedicated to cleaning up Belfast’s cars for a great cause.

With the assistance of strategic partner, AutoKleen, team members at Charles Hurst Group’s Boucher Road Complex will roll up their sleeves and get their chamois ready to fundraise for this worthwhile charity.

Colin McNab, Charles Hurst Group’s Operations Director said:

“We are proud to be doing our bit to support such an important cause and are excited to see the full Charles Hurst Belfast team take part in what we hope will be a fantastic event. We will endeavour to give each car the same high-quality cleaning service we give our valued sales and aftersales customers. We aim to see hundreds of sparkling clean cars and happy drivers leaving the Big Wash and hope visitors will give as generously as they can.”

Drivers keen to take part should enter Charles Hurst Group’s Boucher Road Complex via the security gate at the old Ulster Bank building and follow the sign posts to access the Big Wash, or look out for Pudsey who will be on hand to direct cars for their charitable clean-up.

A recommended donation of £3-5 per car wash is suggested, with all funds going directly to BBC Children in Need Northern Ireland.

Charles Hurst Group is part of leading automotive retail group, Lookers, which appointed BBC Children in Need as its retail charity partner of choice, earlier this year. Lookers has pledged to raise £1million for the charity across its car retail nationwide with the help of events like the ‘Big Wash’ and the recent Charles Hurst Golf Invitational.

The official BBC Children in Need fundraising pack is available for download now from and is bursting with ideas to inspire Do Your Thing fundraising ahead of the 38th Appeal show.

The Big Wash will take place from 9am – 5pm on November 17 at the main Boucher Road complex.
