FIREFIGHTERS have thanked the people of Crewe for their generosity following a successful charity car wash.

Drivers turned out in force to support The Fire Fighters Charity on Saturday, April 5.

Station Manager Paul Binyon said: "Firefighters, fire cadets and teams of helpers with their buckets and sponges raised money for this worthy cause as well as handing out road safety advice at Crewe Fire Station.

“We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped us raise an amazing £490."

Chair of the Fire Fighters Charity and deputy chief fire officer, Mark Cashin, added: “It is testament to the support we have from the public when events such as this show how generous people can be as a magnificent total of £490 was raised on the day.

“It costs over £9 million 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.”
