Crews from Whittlesey and Chatteris welcomed dozens of local residents through the doors to have their vehicles washed.

Firefighter Andrew Stracey from Chatteris said: “We had a fantastic day that was really well supported by the generous people of Chatteris.

“We had a steady flow of vehicles all day. Even though we had to dash off to a kitchen fire in March, we were soon back and by the end of the day raised a fantastic £474.45.”

Whittlesey firefighters also put their buckets and sponges to good use with around 60 cars that passed through the station.
