Car wash will help sick kids

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Times News -

THE Man­jimup-Bridgetown Times team will be work­ing with the com­mu­nity this week­end to raise money for Telethon.

As part of the 50th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions of Telethon, which is be­ing held on October 21-22, the news­pa­per will be hold­ing a car wash and sausage siz­zle this Satur­day to raise money for chil­dren liv­ing with life-threat­en­ing dis­eases.

In ad­di­tion to rais­ing money for med­i­cal ad­vances in treat­ing chil­dren’s dis­eases, Telethon also pro­vides equip­ment, re­sources and crit­i­cal ser­vices across the State.

In an ef­fort to do its part for Telethon, the Times is ask­ing peo­ple to bring their cars to Man­jimup BP on Satur­day from 8am for a wash and buy a sausage siz­zle while they wait.

“Telethon is an in­cred­i­bly worth­while cause we are priv­i­leged to have been in­volved with for many years,” Man­jimup-Bridgetown Times branch man­ager Pe­tula Hol­land said.

“Thank you to Wool­worths for the do­na­tions to­wards the sausage siz­zle, to the Man­jimup BP and Man­jimup Mono­grams for the use of their space and to Easy AZ Car Clean­ing for the pro­fes­sional clean­ing tools on loan to us.”

The sausage siz­zle will be held in Man­jimup Mono­grams’ drive­way from 8am, with sausages $2.50 or $3 with a drink. Sedans will be $10 and four-wheel-drives will be $15 for a wash.

The Man­jimup-Bridgetown Times will also be of­fer­ing the news­pa­per and a cof­fee for $3 in the of­fice un­til Fri­day.
