Sponges at the ready for charity car wash

Firefighters at Kingswood Fire Station will have buckets and sponges at the ready this weekend as they take part in a charity car wash.

The fundraiser takes place from 09.00hrs until 13.00hrs this Saturday, 26 September, at the Tenniscourt Road fire station.

Crews will be raising money for The Fire Fighters Charity which provides support services and treatment to serving and retired members of staff from UK fire and rescue services.

On the day they will also be joined by sixth form students from Mangotsfield School who will be collecting money for a World Challenge expedition to Borneo.
