Fire fighter charity car wash

Wokingham Fire Station hosted a charity car wash on Saturday April 25. The annual event was to raise monies for the Fire Fighter’s Charity which looks after the welfare of serving and ex-fire fighters across the UK.

Fire fighter Ross Burton said: “We raised just under £1,000 on the day which is a fantastic effort from everyone.

“A special big thank you to Domino’s Pizza at Lower Earley for giving us a free lunch and keeping us going, and to Wokingham and Whitley Wood Fire Stations who helped us out with the car wash.”

Rev Maureen Devine from St Nicolas’ church, Earley was also present in her capacity as Chaplain for Wokingham Road and Whitley Wood fire stations. “I visit all the watches once a month,” she said. “I listen to them and care for their needs and support them.

“They are a great bunch and I love this job.” she said.
