Fire­fight­ers soap up ready for char­ity wash

Macclesfield Express - - NEWS -

FIRE­FIGHT­ERS are hop­ing to swap buck­ets of wa­ter for buck­ets of cash in aid of the char­ity which sup­ports them.

The Macclesfield crew is get­ting ready to roll up their sleeves to raise money for the Fire Fight­ers Char­ity 12th an­nual car wash this week­end.

Res­i­dents can get their cars washed by the crew, as well as re­ceiv­ing vi­tal road safety ad­vice, at the fire sta­tion on Ch­ester Road on Satur­day (March 12) from 11am to 3pm.

Fire­fighter Stu­art Plas­kett, who is the ser­vice’s fire fighter char­ity co­or­di­na­tor, said: “We would re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate mo­torists bring­ing their cars along to have them washed in re­turn for a dona­tion.

“All funds raised go to The Fire Fight­ers Char­ity which is the UK’s lead­ing provider of life-en­hanc­ing ser­vices for serv­ing and re­tired fire ser­vice per­son­nel and their fam­i­lies.”

Mark Cashin, deputy chief fire of­fi­cer, said the char­ity has helped fire­fight­ers for more than 60 years.

He said: “Un­for­tu­nately our fire­fight­ers see first hand the tragic con­se­quences of road traf­fic col­li­sions and those who sup­port this event will also take away vi­tal road safety ad­vice which could save their lives.”
