The Fire Fighters Charity provides valuable services to for injured Firefighters, Service staff, their families and retired Firefighters. It also provides a range of services from supporting bereaved families to providing help with housing.

It has three rehabilitation centres in Cumbria, Devon and West Sussex, which cost £9m a year to run. The charity relies on public funding to keep going so it can help those in need of support.

Jan Carr, MF&RS deputy service co-ordinator for the Fire Fighters Charity, said: “We really want the September car wash campaign to be the most successful yet for Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service.

“The Fire Fighters Charity is a very worthwhile cause that continues to help many people in the firefighting community.

“We hope many people will come along, have their cars washed and meet the Firefighters.”
