This Sunday (March 17), firefighters will participate in the National Car Wash League.

The money raised will go to the Fire Fighters Charity who provides support and rehabilitation to the fire and rescue community.

The charity began 75 years ago by supporting bereaved families of firefighters who were killed in the Blitz.

Chief Executive of The Fire Fighters Charity, Dr Jill Tolfrey, 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.'
