Firmly established on the fire and rescue service calendar, the National Car Wash is the charity's largest national fundraising event of the year.  Motorists are invited to take their car along and have it washed in return for a donation to The Fire Fighters Charity, the UK’s leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired fire service personnel and their families.

Chief Fire Officer Lee Howell said: “Monies raised through national fundraising initiatives provide a real boost to The Fire Fighters Charity. As well as being a fun and popular event for the charity, the National Car Wash also gives our firefighters the opportunity to share important safety messages with members of their local community.

“Your valued donations will go towards helping thousands of men, women and children from the fire and rescue community during their times of need.”  

Chief Executive of The Fire Fighters Charity, John Parry, added: “The National Car Wash provides a vital source of income for our charity, as well as being a fun event with a serious safety message. As a charity, we rely entirely upon donations from the general public and the fire and rescue community. We would like to encourage members of the public to show their support for our fire fighting heroes by visiting their local fire station - and afterwards drive away safely, in a clean car!"
