Firefighters from Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) are hosting a car boot sale at Dee Road Fire Station in Reading on Sunday,14 August to raise money for two very deserving causes.

The price of admission for buyers is only £1, with the car boot sale running between 9am and 2pm.

All money raised will go to The Fire Fighters Charity, which provides a range of services for fire service personnel and their families, including therapy and rehabilitation for injured firefighters, and Action on Hearing Loss, a charity that works on behalf of people who are deaf or have hearing loss.

Mark Jones, Watch Manager at Dee Road Fire Station, said: “We’re hoping for a really good turnout of both buyers and sellers to help us raise as much money as possible for the two charities, The Fire Fighters Charity and Action on Hearing Loss”.

“Both charities do fantastic work and are two causes that are very close to our hearts. This event is a great opportunity for firefighters and members of the public to support them.”

Refreshments and food will also be on sale at the event. Please note that parking on site is strictly only for sellers. Other spaces may be available on Spey Road and Dee Road, and local bus routes operate nearby.
