This Easter weekend (26 March), firefighters from Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) will be cleaning cars in return for donations to a very deserving cause!
Slough firefighters will be offering a helping hand at the fire station in Tuns Lane between 10am and 4pm as part of The Fire Fighters Charity’s national car wash event.
The Fire Fighters Charity provides a range of services for fire service personnel and their families, including therapy and rehabilitation for injured firefighters.
Sean Keeley, Station Commander at Slough Fire Station, said: “The Fire Fighters Charity does amazing work and many of our colleagues have benefitted from the services it offers. As a fire station, we always look forward to the national car wash events as it gives us a great opportunity to give back by raising as much money as possible for a great cause. This year, the pressure is really on, as we are hoping that we will be able to win the national car wash champion title for the third year in a row!
“Our car washes are always very well supported by generous members of the public and we hope that Saturday’s event will be equally successful. You will also have the chance to ask any questions you may have about fire safety in the home, so if you’re passing the fire station, just pop in. We look forward to seeing you there!”
The suggested minimum donation is £5 per car.
