Let a firefighter wash your car!

This year a record number of Fire Stations throughout Devon and Somerset will be taking part in the national car wash this September.

This Saturday bring your car along to your local Fire Station (see the list below) and have it washed in return for a donation to The Fire Fighters Charity, the UK’s leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired fire service personnel and their families.

Lee Howell, Chief Fire Officer for Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service said:  “Monies raised through national fundraising initiatives provide a real boost to The Fire Fighters Charity. As well as being a fun and popular event the National Car Wash also gives our firefighters the opportunity to share important safety messages with members of their local community.

“Your valued donations will go towards helping thousands of men, women and children from the fire and rescue community during their times of need.”
