CARS will be washed and polished to perfection this weekend - and all for a good cause.

The generous owners of Car Clinic in Montrose, Stuart Maxwell (26) and Graham Stephenson (21), read in the Review about a sponsored climb of Mount Kilimanjaro in October by Craig Brown (39), David Taylor (36) and Richard Fenwick (51).

They will be raising funds for CMN or Caring Matters Now, which researches Congenital Melanocytic Naevi, also known as CMN.

CMN is a severe birthmark that continues to grow into adulthood. It is an abnormally large and complex collection of dark pigment cells which is difficult to remove and is often disfiguring.

David’s four-year-old daughter, Jessica, suffers from the birthmark and the trio decided to undertake the walk to raise awareness of the condition.

Stuart and Graham reckoned they should do something to boost sponsorship, and came up with the fantastic idea of donating all of this weekend’s takings from their professional valet service at 81 Bridge Street.

Their sponsorship takes place on Saturday (June 18), and the following day, Sunday.

On hearing of Stuart and Graham’s generosity Craig said: “It is fantastic, all sponsor money is welcomed for this charity and we have been amazed by the generosity of everyone.”

Stuart commented: “I am looking forward to the weekend. We are doing our bit for this sponsored climb and it is for a great cause.”

Graham added: “We hope to wash as many cars as possible for the charity and that the sun comes out.”

Car Clinic has indoor space as well as a forecourt for washing vehicles, meaning there is plenty of room to raise sponsor money.

The business is open from 9am until 5.30pm and customers can book an appointment to guarantee a place.
