Firefighters at Middlewich Fire Station have thanked the town for the generosity at their charity car wash. Drivers turned out in force to support The Fire Fighters Charity at the car wash on Saturday, March 28, and helped raise £340 for the charity.
Firefighters were overwhelmed with the support on the day in Middlewich and say the charity is reliant on the generosity of the public. Ash Powell, firefighter and organiser of the fundraiser, said:
"Firefighters and helpers with their buckets and sponges raised money for this worthy cause as well as handing out road safety advice at the station. We'd like to say a big, big thank you to everyone who helped us raise £340."
Mark Cashin, Cheshire chair of the Fire Fighters Charity and deputy chief fire officer, added: "It is testament to the support we have from the public when events such as this show how generous people can be.
"It costs more than £9million every year to keep The Fire Fighters Charity running and, with no government funding, it is completely reliant on donations from the general public and fire community.”
