THANKS to the kind support of local communities Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service raised more cash than any other brigade in the UK during the recent Fire Fighters Charity Car Wash Month.

Carwashes took place across the county during March and raised in excess of £7,000.

Building on last year’s fantastic results Heywood Community Fire Station came top in Greater Manchester for the third time in a row raising just over £1,000.

County Fire Officer (Designate) Peter O’Reilly, said: “The Fire Fighters Charity is a fantastic organisation and we’re incredibly proud to have raised more money for them than any other fire service in the UK during the recent car washes.

“I’d like to thank our firefighters, staff and volunteers who worked hard to achieve this fantastic result, but most of all I would to thank to people of Greater Manchester for their incredible generosity.”
