Firefighters from across the county, including crews from the Boston and Caistor area, will be soaking up the suds and getting into a lather during March as they take part in charity car washes.

Taking place in various locations throughout March, crews will be on hand to wash people’s cars in return for a donation to The Fire Fighters Charity.

Mark Baxter, area manager response, said: “Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue has been taking part in charity car washes for a number of years now and they’re always great fun to be involved in.

“All proceeds will go straight to The Fire Fighter’s Charity, which provides life enhancing support for serving and retired firefighters, and which is completely reliant on donations to continue its work.

“We hope as many people as possible take up the unique opportunity to have their car washed by one of their local firefighters and help raise money for a worthwhile cause!”

Crews will be getting their hands dirty on the dates below:

March 17

• Corby Glen Fire Station, from 10am

March 18

• Crowland Fire Station, from 10am to 4pm

March 24

• Donington Fire Station, from 10am
