Charity car washes being held at two fire stations on Saturday 8 March, 10am to 3pm, in aid of the Fire Fighters Charity:
Westlea Fire Station, Dixon Way, off Mead Way, Westlea, West Swindon and
Stratton Fire Station, Highworth Road, Stratton St Margaret.
As well as car washing in return for donations, the crews will be able to advise on home fire safety and provide information to anyone interested in joining Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service as an ‘on-call’ firefighter.
The Fire Fighters Charity provides help to serving and retired personnel, their widows/widowers and young dependants through the provision of sheltered accommodation, recuperative facilities, rehabilitation and therapy, as well as giving financial support to those who need it.
The charity works with some 11,000 beneficiaries every year at a cost of £9 million per annum, and these services are financed almost exclusively by fundraising.
