He said: “We have seen first-hand the work that the charity can do assisting personnel back to the workplace and fully appreciate it.”

Mr Robertson added: “It is also important due to the last few years, where fundraising has been minimal, to get back out and assist where we can.”

Everyone is welcome to go along and have their car washed for a small donation.
