Firefighters at the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service headquarters at Clyst St George will be washing cars for charity this Saturday.

The event, part of The Fire Fighters Charity’s national car wash initiative, will take place between 9am and 2pm – and as well as the firefighters, Mickey the ‘live scent’ rescue dog will also be on hand to help.

The Fireman Sam shop will also be there, and there will be the chance for visitors to find out all they need to know about keeping their home and family safe from fire.

There is no charge, but all donations for The Fire Fighters Charity will be gratefully received .

Chief Fire Officer Lee Howell 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 firefighters the opportunity to share important safety messages with members of their local community.

“Your valued donations will go towards helping thousands of men, women and children from the fire and rescue community during their times of need.”
