Fire station car wash raises charity funds

in News

The event was run by volunteers to help raise funds for both the Fire Fighters Charity and Forest Dog Rescue, based in Oakhill Avenue in Kidderminster.

Watch Commander Amy Waring from Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service thanked all those who supported the car wash and donated so generously. She said: "We were really pleased with the day. Around 100 cars came through the station and we raised an amazing £593.28 which will be split equally between the two charities.

"There were plenty of volunteers from both the fire station and Forest Dog Rescue, and they all worked really hard on the day, washing cars and also handing out vehicle crime reduction packs, information on fire safety in the home and also details on the dogs at Forest Dog Rescue who need re-homing."

She also passed on thanks to Tesco and Morrisons for their donations to buy equipment for the car wash, and to Pets at Home who donated some treats for the dogs.

A further £124.50 was also donated to Forest Dog Rescue by a member of staff from Kidderminster Fire Station.
