Slough firefighters hold charity car wash

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) firefighters will be holding a charity car wash on Saturday, 25 March in an effort to raise as much money as possible for a very deserving cause.

The car wash will take place at Slough Fire Station on Tuns Lane between 10 am and 4 pm, with all money raised, going to The Fire Fighters Charity. 

Our firefighters will be taking part in The Fire Fighters Charity national car wash league for 2016/17. During this, hundreds of fire stations across the UK compete against each other to wash as many cars as possible and raise as much money as possible for The Fire Fighters Charity.

The Fire Fighters Charity provides a range of services for fire service personnel and their families, including therapy and rehabilitation for injured firefighters. Donations help the charity to continue in the provision of life enhancing services to the fire and rescue community.

During September, Slough Fire Station was runners up to the top place in the league, having raised a fantastic £1593.11 for the charity. This time around they are hoping that the community will be just as generous and help raise even more money for the deserving cause.

The suggested minimum donation is £5 per car.
