Firefighters across the county will once again be scrubbing cars for charity.
Firefighters across the county will once again be scrubbing cars for charity.

Lincolnshire’s firefighters are once again going to be arming themselves with sponges and buckets to clean your dirty car.

Thanks to equipment donated by Motor Parts Direct of Lincoln and Boston, fire crews will be taking on the county’s dirty cars in a series of car washes across Lincolnshire, working up a sweat to raise money for the Fire Fighters Charity.

Matt King, deputy divisional commander and charity representative for East Division, says he hopes as many people as possible will support the crews. “At this time of year when it’s still cold outside, washing your car may not be on the list of things you want to do, so let us do the hard work for you,” he said. “Our crews will be on hand at various locations across the county, armed with bucket and sponges and ready to lather up and make your car squeaky clean.

“It’s a great opportunity to get your car washed, meet your local firefighters and make a difference to a worthwhile cause. It’s also a good opportunity for anyone interested in joining the team to talk to the crews and find out what it’s really like to be an on-call firefighter.”
