Got a dirty car but couldn’t be bothered to wash it? Take the pressure off and let our firefighters tackle the job.

On Saturday 12th April, firefighters in Fulwood host a Car Wash Day on behalf of The Fire Fighters Charity.

Get down to Fulwood Fire Station, on Garstang Road, Fulwood, between 9am and 4pm and let the firefighters give it a a bit of TLC.

Firefighters will cleaning up for The Fire Fighters Charity, the official organisation which supports injured firefighters during their times of need.

A fire and rescue service calendar regular, the National Car Wash is The Fire Fighters Charity’s largest national fundraising event of the year. The charity provides assistance to serving and retired personnel, their widow/ers and young dependents through the provision of sheltered accommodation, recuperative facilities, rehabilitation and therapy, in addition to financial support to those who need it.

The Fire Fighters Charity helps an estimated 11,000 beneficiaries each year. It has introduced new initiatives such as Child and Family Therapy programmes, which aim to enhance the quality of life for fire service personnel families who have a child with an illness or disability. It costs around £9 million to run each year and the majority of this money is generated by fundraising efforts.

A great day for all, not only will you come away with a clean car, but you can also help raise greatly needed funds for the charity, whilst also educating your family about fire safety.
