FIREFIGHTERS from Southport Community
Fire Station will be holding a car wash, at the Station, on Saturday, 1 July 2017, to
raise money for the British Red Cross London Fire Relief Fund, which is helping
people affected by the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower, and The Fire Fighters
All are welcome at the event, which will run from 10am to 4pm.
Watch Manager Dave Shanahan said:- "As firefighters, we were heartbroken
by the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower and the consequences for the residents
who lost loved ones.
Our thoughts also went out to our colleagues at London Fire Brigade who did
their very best in unimaginable conditions.
As a Station we decided right away to hold a car wash to raise money, to help
all those involved in this tragic event." A portion of money raised will also be donated to The Fire Fighters Charity,
which supports fire service staff in times of need.
