Firefighters safety advice to people with dementia in Southport

Firefighters in Southport are staging a charity car wash taking place at Southport Community Fire Station on the 11th October from 11am to 3pm.

The car wash will be in aid of The Fire Fighters Charity and the Legacy Rainbow House, a national charity working with children with acquired brain injury, multiple disabilities and complex health needs. HSBC bank have promised to match any money raised on the day.

Southport and Formby Firefighters, members from the Prince’s Trust Team programme, run by Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service at fire stations across Merseyside, and some staff from HSBC will all be there washing cars and offering any fire safety advice needed.

Watch Manager Ian Nelson from White Watch at Southport Community Fire Station said: “This will be an excellent opportunity for people to come down to their local fire station, meet the firefighters and people from the Prince’s Trust team programme and get their cars washed – whilst supporting two excellent charities. Due to the match-funding anything we make means both parties get 100% of the takings.”
