Make a splash at your local fire station

14th March 2012

Firmly established on the fire and rescue service calendar, the National Car Wash is the charity's largest national fundraising event of the year.  Motorists are invited to take their car along and have it washed in return for a donation to The Fire Fighters Charity, the UK’s leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired fire service personnel and their families.
