Southport firefighters thank community for ‘generous support’ after raising £470 at charity car wash

Southport firefighters are offering their thanks to the local community for helping them raise almost £500 at a charity car wash.

Firefighters from Southport Community Fire Station White Watch, together with fire cadets from Bootle and Netherton Fire Station, rolled up their sleeves to wash cars last weekend, Sunday March 13.

The event, which took place at Southport Community Fire Station on Albert Road, was held to raise funds for The Fire Fighters Charity.


Watch Manager Steve Bousfield said: “We were absolutely thrilled with how many people came along to the car wash and would like to thank the community and local agencies for their generous support.

“Everyone involved had a great day and we were delighted to be able to provide a service for the people of Southport while raising funds for a vital cause.

“The Fire Fighters Charity is very important to firefighters and the rest of the firefighting community.

“It offers a range of valuable services including rehabilitation to help injured firefighters get back to fitness, as well as financial and emotional support.

“Everyone who came along to get their car washed has helped make a positive difference to firefighters, Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service staff, retired firefighters and their family members in need.”

The Fire Fighters is the leading provider of advice, guidance, treatment and support for serving and retired fire service personnel and their families.
