The Ely crew, based in Egremont Street, swapped their hoses and engines for sponges and soap to raise funds for The Fire Fighters Charity.
The crews were kept very busy across both days by residents keen to show their support and to give their cars a spruce up.
Crews from Chatteris, Gamlingay and Papworth also held charity car washes at their stations, helping to raise a grand total of £1,500.
