Firefighters shine again for charity at Winwick Road Fire Station


A GROUP of fundraising firefighters in Warrington are gearing up for their second charity car wash in seven days.

Warrington’s annual car wash in aid of The Fire Fighters Charity took place at the fire station on Winwick Road on Sunday 31 March.

In a bid to raise more money for the charity, the station’s firefighters have decided to roll up their sleeves again this weekend for another day of car cleaning.

Anyone willing to have their car made spick and span for a good cause should take it along to the fire station between 11am and 4pm on Sunday 7 April.

Firefighter Stuart Plaskett, who is The Fire Fighters Charity co-ordinator for Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: “We want to raise as much money as we can for this vital charity that provides essential respite, recuperation and rehabilitation for sick and injured firefighters and their families.

“As such we would really appreciate as many motorists as possible bringing their cars along to have them washed in return for a donation.

“As well as washing cars, we’ll also be offering all motorists vital road safety advice, which could save their lives.”

North west Chair of The Fire Fighters Charity and Chief Fire Officer Mark Cashin said: “Charity car washes are a great way to not only increase awareness of road safety but also to raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity, which has provided assistance to serving and retired firefighters for more than 75 years.”
