Come on down to the firefighters' car wash

Motorists can swing by a number of car washes run by firefighters for charity this month (March).
Organisers are hoping the events will be well-supported by the community to raise cash for The Fire Fighters Charity.

Crews and volunteers will be giving up their time to run the car washes at the below venues on stated dates:

  • Parkside Place Community Fire and Rescue Station, in Parkside, Cambridge, from 9am until 5pm on Saturday, March 12.
  • Whittlesey Fire Station, Cemetary Road, Whittlesey, from 9am until 2pm on Saturday, March 12.
  • Huntingdon Fire Station, Hartford Road, Huntingdon, from 10.30am until 3pm on Saturday, March 19.
  • Chatteris Fire Station, Station Street, Chatteris, from 10am on Saturday March 12.

Martin Ockenden, Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service charity representative, said: “Our car washes are always well supported and it is always brilliant to see the community support our efforts to raise cash for this cause.

“We’ve previously cleaned everything from vans and ambulances, to bikes and minis, so we can’t wait to see what turns up at the car washes this month.”

Funds raised will be donated to The Fire Fighters Charity, which provides support, rehabilitation and care for fire service personnel across the country.
