Lichfield Firefighters Scrub Up For Charity

Firefighters from Lichfield will be holding a charity car wash event this Saturday, March 15. The event will take place from 10am until 4pm at Lichfield Fire Station.

“Not only can drivers get their car washed and do their bit for charity; they will also be able to request their free Home Fire Risk Check, to ensure they are as safe from fire as possible in their homes.”

Motorists are invited to take their car along and have it washed in return for a donation to The Fire Fighters Charity, which supports serving and retired fire service personnel and their families and Action Against Hunger Charity.

As well as firefighters, fire and rescue service cadets will also be rolling up their sleeves for the event.

Service Co-ordinator for The Fire Fighters Charity Angie Leigh said: “Not only can drivers get their car washed and do their bit for charity; they will also be able to request their free Home Fire Risk Check, to ensure they are as safe from fire as possible in their homes.”

Action Against Hunger’s Challenge and Community Events Manager, Francine Heggie, said: “We are delighted that The Fire Service cadets, in Lichfield, are supporting our fundraising efforts for Action Against Hunger and joining a growing movement to fight hunger around the world.

“There is enough food in the world for everyone, but every single day 8,000 children die of hunger related causes.

“By taking part in the car wash, the cadets will raise vital funds for Action Against Hunger’s lifesaving work in over 45 countries and take us a step closer to seeing an end to child hunger in our lifetime.”
