Car washes to raise money for Fire Fighters Charity

Charity car washes will be taking place at three fire stations in the city on Saturday.

They will be held at Bletchley, Broughton and Great Holm from 10am to 2pm. Firefighters will be washing cars in return for donations to The Fire Fighters Charity.

It’s a national charity which provides assistance to serving and retired fire and rescue service staff, their families and dependants.

The three stations have recruited a number of helpers to make sure the car washes run smoothly if the duty crews are called out to emergency incidents.

With a domestic hosepipe ban due to start in the region on 5 April, firefighters will be making every effort to recycle as much water as possible so that it can be used during training exercises.

A number of other car washes that were due to take place at fire stations in areas where domestic hosepipe bans are already in force have been postponed.
