Chatteris firefighters have raised more than £700 for charity after soaping up their sponges at the weekend.

The crew at Chatteris on-call fire station, in Fenland, welcomed dozens of local residents to have their vehicles washed by the firefighters at the charity event on Saturday (September 14).

They collected £352 on the day, which has been match funded by Barclays and will be donated to The Fire Fighters Charity, which provides support, rehabilitation and care for fire service personnel across the country.

Mark Edgley, Watch Commander at Chatteris Fire Station, said: “It was a really good event and we appreciate the support of the local community in coming out to support it.

“We managed to raise a good sum of money, which we’re really thrilled is being matched by Barclays.”
