THIS Saturday (March 4), crews from Rochdale, Blackley, Hyde, Stalybridge, Cheadle and Wythenshawe dust off their sponges to begin this year’s first charity car wash month.
Over the next few weeks, fire stations from across Greater Manchester will host their own car washes to raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity.
Alan Knell from The Fire Fighters Charity said: “The National Car Wash League provides a vital source of income for the Charity, as well as being a fun and popular event.
“It costs £8.5million a year to keep The Fire Fighters Charity running – and with no regular government funding, we rely completely on your donations and goodwill.
“You can show your support to our firefighting heroes by visiting your local fire station on weekends throughout March – and afterwards drive away safely, in a clean car!”
With car washes running every weekend in March at 28 of our fire stations, GMFRS invites you to help us fill our buckets whilst you enjoy a squeaky clean car.
All car washes are running between the hours of 10am and 4pm but check the events page on our website to see further details about your local car wash.
