Fire station car wash raises £324

FIREFIGHTERS got their buckets and sponges out at the weekend as they washed people’s cars to raise money for the Fire Fighters Charity.

The event, at Salisbury Fire Station in Ashley Road on Saturday, raised £324, with help from volunteers from the Prince’s Trust.

As well as washing cars in return for donations, the Salisbury crew were also on hand to advise on home fire safety and provide information to anyone interested in joining Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service as an on-call firefighter.

The Fire Fighters Charity provides help to serving and retired personnel, their widows/widowers and young dependants through the provision of sheltered accommodation, recuperative facilities, rehabilitation and therapy, as well as giving financial support to those who need it.

It costs £9m a year to run per annum, and its services are financed almost exclusively by fundraising.
