Nearly 300 cars were scrubbed by March firefighters during a charity event on Saturday. In just four hours a team of nearly 20 volunteers washed 275 cars at the town’s Tesco store and raised £810, to be split between the Firefighters Charity and local charity Welcome To Our World. This group was set up to support children and young adults with disabilities. The aim is to raise funds to build and run a centre that meets the needs of everyone in the community. Watch Commander at March, Andy Powell, said: “What an incredible event! The stream of vehicles did not stop and people were so generous with their donations. “We were very grateful for the generosity shown by everyone who had their cars washed, as well as the people who came along to just make a donation. It was hard work but it was worth it to be able to support two great causes.” Wisbech Fire Station will be running a charity car wash at the station on Saturday, September 20.
