BARNSLEY'S firefighters will be washing cars this Saturday as part of a national event to raise money for their injured colleagues.

The event is aimed at raising money for The Fire Fighter's Charity, which supports injured firefighters and their families.

As well as washing cars, firefighters will also be on hand to offer road and fire safety advice.

Station manager Steve Adams said: "We are appealing for members of the public to support this event.

"They will drive away in a clean car and will also be given advice on fire safety. At the same time, they will contribute a valuable donation to this great charity."

Firefighters from Cudworth station, on Tumbling Lane, will be on hand with their sponges from 11am-1pm and from 3pm-5pm.
