A postponed charity car wash in Exmouth has raised vital funds for a national charity which supports injured firefighters.
The event, at the fire station in Salterton Road, was called off first-time around after snow from ‘The Beast from the East’ brought the region to a standstill.
Wet weather at the rearranged event did not deter the blue watch firefighters from raising nearly £100.
Fire stations across the country hold charity car washes twice a year and the money from this event will go towards the Fire Fighter’s Charity, which helps the families of injured personnel.
Chris Hunt, blue watch manager, said there were not as firefighters would have liked, but raising funds for the national charity is important.
He added: “It’s a worthy cause that needs supporting by way of donations.”
Despite the low turnout, crews at Exmouth Fire Station are intending to hold another car wash in the autumn.
