FURTHER dates have been given for people to get their cars washed by firefighters and raise money for charity.

The National Car Wash is the Fire Fighters Charity’s biggest annual fundraiser.

But earlier this year car washes in Hampshire were cancelled due to a proposed hose pipe ban by several water companies.

This was lifted last month and since then stations have been holding car washes.

The next stations to take part are:

· Gosport fire station, on Saturday, September 15

· Emsworth fire station, on Saturday, September 22

· And firefighters from Southsea will be holding a car wash at the Asda store, in Fratton, on Saturday, October 13.

All car washes run from 10am to 4pm.

The Fire Fighters Charity helps improve the quality of life for serving and retired fire service personnel and their families.

The charity’s chief executive John Parry said: ‘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.

‘We rely entirely upon donations from the public and the fire and rescue community.

‘We would like to encourage people to show their support for our fire fighting heroes by visiting their station, then drive away safely, in a clean car.’
