Charity car wash a huge success

The car wash took place on Saturday 24 March at Worcester Fire Station in Copenhagen Street and was organised to raise funds for both the Fire Fighters Charity and the family of a former Blue Watch colleague who is seriously ill.

The car wash raised an amazing £1,200 and a further £2,100 was raised from a charity auction and raffle held later the same evening at the Bull Inn in Fernhill Heath.

Firefighter Miles Wheeler from Blue Watch, Worcester said: "We were overwhelmed with the support we received for both the car wash and the charity evening, and we're really grateful to motorists for giving so generously and to local businesses and other organisations for donating some fantastic prizes for the auction and raffle. "

He passed on his thanks to everyone who supported the two events, saying that the funds would be going to two very worthwhile causes.
