Firefighters hold car wash to raise money for Violet-Grace Youens memorial garden


Tuesday, 27 June 2017


Firefighters from Eccleston Community Fire Station will be holding a car wash to raise funds for a memorial garden for Violet-Grace Youens, the four-year-old girl who tragically died after being knocked down by a car in St Helens in March.

Crews will be washing cars for donations at the event, which will run from 10am to 3pm at Eccleston Community Fire Station on Knowsley Road on Saturday, July 1.

Members of Violet-Grace’s family will also be attending.

Funds raised will go towards creating a memorial garden for Violet-Grace at the station, which her family and fellow pupils from Eccleston Mere Primary School will help to design.

A portion of the proceeds from the car wash be used to install a memorial bench outside Eccleston Community Fire Station, and money will also be donated to The Fire Fighters Charity.

Everyone is welcome at the event, we look forward to seeing you there.
