Members of the Fire Depot team will be making a splash in the local community by helping out at a car wash being held at Oakham Fire Station this Saturday, 10th September.
Both the firefighters at Oakham Fire Station and the team at Fire Depot are promoting the event and encouraging local people to bring their cars to be washed. Donations will go towards The Fire Fighters Charity – the leading provider of support and rehabilitation to the fire and rescue community. The organisation provides a full package of health and wellbeing support, exactly tailored to the needs of firefighters and also supports retired firefighters and their families.
Firmly established on the fire and rescue service calendar, the National Car Wash League is the Fire Fighters Charity's largest national fundraising event of the year. It costs £9 million a year to keep Charity running – and with no regular government funding, it relies completely on donations and goodwill.
Laurie Pollard, Managing Partner at Fire Depot said: 'This promises to be a fun and worthwhile event. We are very pleased to be able to work with our local fire station in Oakham and to get more involved in the local community here in Rutland. We have a great deal in common with the fire fighters since we are both in the business of fire protection and prevention'.
