Fenland firefighters raised more than £200 for charity after soaping up their sponges at the weekend.

The crew at Manea on-call fire station welcomed dozens of residents to the Rose and Crown pub to have their vehicles washed by the

firefighters.

The event on Saturday (September 28) raised £210 for The Fire Fighters Charity, which provides support, rehabilitation and care for fire service

personnel across the country.

Martin Brown, station commander at Manea fire station, said: “It was a great turnout by local residents and we had people queuing up along the

street. A big thank you to the Rose and Crown for having us and to the many motorists who came out to support this worthwhile charity.

“We spoke to lots of people about joining the service and would encourage anyone who is thinking about becoming an on-call firefighter in Manea to

get in touch with our recruitment team.”
