Torquay firefighters are ready for the big car wash
FIREFIGHTERS up and down the country are preparing to roll up their sleeves to take part in the National Car Wash this Autumn, raising vital funds for The Fire Fighters Charity.
Firmly established on the fire and rescue service calendar, the National Car Wash is the charity's largest national fundraising event of the year. Motorists are invited to take their car along to Sainsburys at the Willows, Torquay on Saturday between 10.30am and 4pm and have it washed in return for a donation to The Fire Fighters Charity, the UK’s leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired fire service personnel and their families.
The event is supported by Sainsburys and Halfords.
Torquay Fire Station Watch Manager Gary Judge said: “Monies raised through national fundraising initiatives provide a real boost to The Fire Fighters Charity.

"As well as being a fun and popular event for the charity, the National Car Wash also gives our fire fighters the opportunity to share important safety messages with members of their local community.
“We are delighted that so many of our fire stations are getting involved and would urge local people to come along and support the day. Your valued donations will go towards helping thousands of men, women and children from the fire and rescue community during their times of need.”
Chief Executive of The Fire Fighters Charity, John Parry, added: “The National Car Wash provides a vital source of income for our charity, as well as being a fun event with a serious safety message. As a charity, we rely entirely upon donations from the general public and the fire and rescue community. We would like to encourage members of the public to show their support for our fire fighting heroes by visiting their local fire station - and afterwards drive away safely, in a clean car!"
