A car wash held by Topsham fire fighters raised £261 for a charity which looks after retired and injured staff.

Nine fire fighters from the Topsham station took part in the event in the car park of the Lord Nelson pub on Saturday, March 28.

The fire fighters gave people advice on road and fire safety at the event and there was a fire engine on hand for the children explore.

This was the first time the event had been held at the pub, as it is usually arranged at the town’s station. Organiser Josh King, a retained firefighter, said: “We beat last year’s total, which is good considering the weather and change of venue. I’m happy with the number of customers. Everyone was very generous.”

Josh said he would like to thank the Lord Nelson for its support.
