Last Saturday the crew at Presteigne Fire Station held a successful car wash to raise funds for worthy causes.

Over the course of the day, a total of 110 cars were washed by the crew which raised a fantastic £1,340.  This amount will be shared between The Firefighters Charity, the Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal and the Sleeping Dragon Presteigne Fund.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service often works closely with The Fire Fighters Charity, which offers easily-accessible and empowering information, advice and support to all serving and retired members of the UK’s fire services. 

The Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal resonates with Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, as two of the Service’s operational team members, Head of Response Southern Division Steve Davies and Watch Manager Phil Irving, have recently returned from their deployment to the disaster zone. 

The Sleeping Dragon Presteigne Fund aims to restore and reinstate a local landmark, a dragon statue that commemorates the 35,000 Welsh soldiers who died during the First World War.

The crew are extremely grateful to Radnor Hills for their sponsorship donation and all those who supported the day’s car wash.
