Following a delay due to the recent snowy weather this weekend sees the return of our National Car Wash Day, where hundreds of fire stations across the UK compete against each other to wash as many cars as they can and raise as much money as possible for our Charity. At stake, the chance to raise tens of thousands of pounds to support injured firefighters, as well as the chance to win the prestigious Car Wash Trophy and money-can’t-buy prizes from sponsor Autoglym.
Natasha Mason, Regional Fundraising Manager at The Fire Fighters Charity said; “We are looking forward to another busy weekend of washing cars. This is part two of our National Car Wash League 2017/18 and the station that raises the most money for us from both their September 2017 and March 2018 events will be crowned champions and win a prize for their team.”
Although the majority car washes will be taking place this weekend, stations have been – and will be – busy with their buckets and sponges every weekend in March. You can use our car wash map to find the dates of fire station car washes happening in your area.
Natasha added; “Some stations have already had their car wash event, so thank you to everyone that has come along already to support our Charity. There will be lots more car washes on March 17th – our National Car Wash Day – so please do check to see if there is one happening in your area and pop along.”
Keep an eye out next week for an update on top competitors for the car wash trophy but for now here is a little taster of some of the fun already had:
