FIREFIGHTERS across Hampshire have been making a splash for charity.

Among those taking part in the National Car Wash were crews from Winchester and Redbridge.

A staple on the fire and rescue service calendar, the event raises cash for The Fire Fighters Charity and is its largest fundraiser of the year.

Residents took their cars along and had them washed by firefighters in return for a donation to the cause.

Andy Bowers, manager at Hampshire Fire and Rescue, said: “We are delighted that so many of our fire stations were involved.

“Your valued donations will go towards helping thousands of men, women and children from the fire and rescue community during their times of need.”
