March fire-fighters made more than a splash over the weekend by raising £800 thanks to a charity car wash.
Despite heavy rain, crew members picked up their sponges, brooms and hoses to wash people’s cars on Saturday in aid of two charities - The Fire Fighters Charity and Dementia Awareness.
The car wash raised £400 in just three hours. It was then matched by Lloyds bank, taking the total up to £800.
All of the money raised is to be split between both charities.
Andy Powell, watch commander, said: “The event was extremely well supported despite the drizzly weather so we would like to thank everyone who brought their vehicles for us to scrub clean.”
