Car wash to be held at Southport Community Fire Station for victims of Grenfell Tower disaster


Wednesday, 28 June 2017


Firefighters from Southport Community Fire Station will be holding a car wash at the station on Saturday, July 1 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 Charity.

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.
