Firefighters in Eastleigh are preparing to roll up their sleeves this Saturday (March 16) to take part in the National Car Wash this March, raising vital funds for The Fire Fighters Charity.
Firmly established on the fire and rescue service calendar, the National Car Wash is the charity’s largest national fundraising event of the year. Motorists are invited to take their car along to Eastleigh Fire Station between 10 am to 4 pm and have it washed in return for a donation to The Fire Fighters Charity, the UK’s leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired fire service personnel and their families.
Area Manager Andy Bowers of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service said:
“The money raised through national fundraising initiatives provides 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 firefighters 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.”
