Lichfield firefighters have raised £720 at a charity car wash event.

All watches plus the area command team took part in the event, cleaning a range of vehicles including a Land Rover and horsebox.

Of the money raised, £350 has been donated to the Fire Fighters Memorial Trust towards the care, maintenance and future development of the Monument and National Memorial Arboretum Garden. The remaining £370 was donated to the Fire Fighters Charity which supports ill and injured fire service personnel and their families.

Lichfield Assistant Area Commander, Dermot Hogan said:

“We are delighted with the amount of money raised on the day and would like to thank everyone who came and had their car washed, played the tombola or just made a donation.

“This is one of the highest amounts ever raised at a charity car wash in Lichfield and it was an excellent way for the whole of Lichfield Fire Station to get stuck in and raise money for charity, plus everyone had fun and the rain even held off!”

Also present on the day to assist with the car wash and tombola stall were three air cadets from Lichfield Air Training Core, Colin Bailey from the Fire Fighter’s Memorial Trust, Cllr Terry Finn, Service Chaplain Nick Rutter and Assistant Chief Fire Officer, Bob Russell.
