Grantham’s firefighters to make a splash in charity car wash
Firefighters will be ‘rescuing’ car owners from their dirty cars this month as crews across the county take part in charity car washes.
Taking place in various locations throughout September, crews will be on hand to wash people’s cars in return for a donation to The Fire Fighters Charity. Firefighters will be getting their hands dirty at Grantham Fire Station on September 12, starting from 10am.
Matt King, deputy divisional commander and charity representative for East Division, says he is looking forward to the events. “Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue has been taking part in charity car washes for a number of years now and they’re always great fun to be involved in,” he said.
“All proceeds will go straight to The Fire Fighters Charity, which provides life enhancing support for serving and retired firefighters, and which is completely reliant on donations to continue its work.
“We hope as many people as possible take up the unique opportunity to have their car washed by one of their local firefighters and help raise money for a worthwhile cause!”
