Fire fighters will roll up their sleeves and grab some sponges when they take part in a charity car wash later this month.

A car wash will take place at Chatteris Community Firestation, Station Street, on Saturday, March 22 from 10am.

The National Car Wash, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, is in aid of The Fire Fighters Charity, which supports injured and retired fire fighters.

Fire fighters will also be on hand to offer fire safety advise.

Last year, the Chatteris crew raised £500 by hosing down cars instead of hosing down fires for the all day event.

Chief Fire Officer Graham Stagg 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 for the charity, the National Car Wash also gives our fire fighters the opportunity to share important safety messages with members of their local community.

“We are delighted that so many of our fire stations are getting involved and would urge local people to come along and support the day.

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