IT was sponges at the ready when the Clarendon Hotel, Hebden, staged a charity car wash.

Licensees Ashley and Hayley Crampton organised the event to raise money for Burnsall School where their children, Benji, eight and Jamie, six, are pupils.

Hayley said: "What a great day we had for it. The sun was out, the buckets were foaming and the car park was full. We raised a soap foaming £250 for Burnsall School."
