Members of the Rosemary Musker High School XL Club have been getting themselves into a lather to raise funds to help members climb a mountain in the peak District and provide a wheelchair for one of its pupils.

The group of Year 10 students raised £236 through washing the public's cars at the fire station in Thetford.

Fire-fighters from the Thetford Watch were involved in the fund-raising project. The service runs the school's XL Club on behalf of the Princes Trust.

It is an out-of-school club for students in their last two years at school. There are various elements that they work on including citizenship, team building, enterprise, explained Mark Keddie who is the XL Club advisor.

Mr Keddie said he wanted to thank everyone who supported the car wash venture including the fire fighters and members of the public.
