SpongeboyBIGChief Fire Officer Paul Fuller and firefighters from Bedfordshire and Luton Fire and Rescue Service will be washing cars for The Fire Fighters Charity on Friday and Saturday 1 and 2 October. The car wash will take place as part of a national event involving firefighters from across the UK. The charity and firefighters are being sponsored by Autoglym car shampoo.

Station Commander Andy Peckham, The Fire Fighters Charity Secretary, Bedfordshire and Luton Fire and Rescue Service, said: "The commitment of our firefighters and staff to fundraising is incredible and raises vital funds for a variety of projects. This fundraiser for The Fire Fighters Charity gives us a fantastic opportunity to meet people from our communities and promote important community fire service initiatives. 

"Whether washing cars or firefighting, we are always keen to get our safety messages across to the public. And one sure way for people to support their local firefighters is through the national charity fundraisers where their money is always put to good use."
