A charity car wash is being held in Bournemouth this Sunday (11 September) in aid of the Fire Fighters Charity.
The event is being organised at Redhill Park fire station in Redhill Avenue, Bournemouth between 10am and 2pm.
Firefighters from Redhill, Springbourne and Westbourne will be washing cars in return for donations – there will also be other helpers and some Fire and Rescue Service volunteers on hand to help in case of fire calls!
The Fire Fighters 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.
The charity works with some 11,000 beneficiaries every year at a cost of £9 million per annum, and these services are financed almost exclusively by fundraising.
