Car Wash

Hampshire Firefighters Support National Charity Car Wash Day...

17 Mar 2010

This weekend fire stations throughout Hampshire will be supporting the Fire Fighters Charity National Car Wash Day on Saturday 20 March. As ever, the event promises to be the charity’s largest singular fundraising event of the year.

Firefighters are getting the soap, sponges and hose jets ready to raise money and add a shine to even the dirtiest car. It will also be an opportunity for you to have a chat about fire safety with the firefighters, whilst the car is being given a gleaming finish. The day is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with a genuinely important cause, brush up on your home fire safety, and drive away with a spotlessly clean car.

Of course, there is a very serious reason as to why this event is taking place; to raise much needed funds for the Fire Fighters Charity. In return for cleaning your car, firefighters will be asking for a donation in order to support the Charity.

So if you keep putting off cleaning your dirty car then why not take it to one of the locations listed below and let our firefighters do it for you!
