Dozens of mucky motors were covered in soap and left to shine as fire fighters from Wisbech held a charity car wash.
Around £800 was raised at the event held at Wisbech Fire Station on Saturday.
It ran from 10am to 3pm, in partnership with students from the College of West Anglia’s Uniformed Services course.
All money raised was split between The Fire Fighters Charity and the college’s chosen charity, the Army Benevolent fund.
Ian Cuthill, who is crew commander at Wisbech and organised the day, said: “It went really well and exceeded our expectations. We washed about 50 to 60 cars throughout the day and raised £800.

“We had all of the crew on the day take part, then another five on call and the students.
“Everyone did a great job. This was the first time in about four years that we’ve held a charity car wash and definitely after the success of this one we will do one again soon.”

More importantly, thanks to all the generous members of the public; many of whom personally thanked us for our efforts which was very humbling”.
