Firefighters soap up ready for charity wash
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.”
