ANYONE needing a car wash can head to the Lerwick Fire Station tomorrow (Saturday) – while raising funds for charity in the process.

The on-call fire crew will offer car washes in return for cash donations to the Fire Fighters Charity.

People can head to the station between 10am and 4pm.

The charity offers specialist, lifelong support for members of the UK fire services community, empowering individuals to achieve mental, physical and social wellbeing throughout their lives.

It was formed during the Second World War to support the bereaved families of firefighters who had died during the Blitz.

Lerwick fire station’s Gavin Anderson said: “Like most charities, they are still recovering from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic so this is our way to give something back in appreciation of the support we have, and continue to receive from them.

“It’s also a great opportunity to promote the work we do in our community and to promote the role we do as on call firefighters.

“Recruitment information will be available to anyone who may be interested in applying to become an on call firefighter or finding out more about the role.”
