Norfolk models wash cars in their swimsuits
Swimsuits may not be the usual attire worn for cleaning cars, but a team of models wore exactly that when they took part in a charity car wash in Norwich.
Models from the Norwich-based Kerri Parker Academy, four of which are Miss Norfolk 2011 finalists, spent a day at the city's Territorial Army base in Aylsham Road where they donned swimwear and tiaras and washed cars to help raise funds for the charity Help for Heroes, which helps injured servicemen and women.
Among them was Maria Allegrino, from Cromer, who said: 'We started at 11am and we had two girls standing at the gates while the others washed cars. It was quite busy and we hope to do other events like this in the future.
'It was a bit cold to start off with, but we got used to it!'
She said the day had been a twist on the usual 'bikini car wash' because Miss Great Britain finalists are no longer allowed to wear two piece bikinis in the competition.
