Firefighters at Westbury Fire Station held their annual charity car wash on Saturday 30th June, raising over £500 for The Fire Fighters Charity.

Westbury firefighters spent the day cleaning approximately 100 cars from 10am – 2pm in return for donations, raising a total of £505.

Organiser Jim Law, watch manager at the Meadow Lane station said, “It was a good day! We were called out just before the finish, but some guys stayed to carry on washing the cars. The amount raised is a great amount.”

All money raised will go towards The Fire Fighters Charity. The 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.

If you are interested in becoming an on-call firefighter, Westbury station is having an open day where anyone aged 18+ can come and try out the equipment and speak to the crew. Visit the station on Meadow Lane on Saturday 21st July from 10am-2pm.
