Firefighters shine for charity

alsager-car-wash-March 2016Firefighters want to thank the people of Alsager for their generosity at their recent charity car wash. Drivers turned out in force to support The Fire Fighters Charity. Car wash organiser, Firefighter Shaun Searle, said: “Firefighters and helpers with their buckets and sponges raised money for this worthy cause at the Station. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped us raise over £350, and, more importantly, for giving us the opportunity to give out vital road safety advice.” Cheshire Chair of the Fire Fighters Charity and Deputy Chief Fire Officer Mark Cashin said, “It is testament to the support we have from the public when events such as this show how generous people can be as a magnificent total of £354.50 was raised on the day. It costs over £9 million every year to keep The Fire Fighters Charity running and, with no government funding, it is completely reliant on donations from the general public and fire community.”
