FIRE-fighters at Ely Fire Station in Egremont Street took part in The National Car Wash on Saturday and raised �270 for The Fire Fighters Charity.
Fire-Fighters across the UK were washing the nation's cars in exchange for a donation for the charity which helps more than 17,000 men, women and children from the fire-fighting community every year.
The National Car Wash is the charity's largest national fund-raising event of the year. In 2008 the event raised more than �340,000 which went directly towards helping beneficiaries, including injured fire-fighters requiring therapy treatments and bereaved fire-fighters' families.
The event also gives fire-fighters an opportunity to interact with a large cross-section of the community, and promote important Community Fire Safety initiatives.
