FIREFIGHTERS from Watton turned into car washers for charity.

The crew got through 64 vehicles, including an articulated lorry, caravan and some expensive sports cars including a new M5 and Lotus Exige.

They raised more than £600 and also gave out fire safety advice and signed 17 people up for a home risk check.

Firefighter Barry Mallindine said: “We would like to offer of sincere thanks to all those members of the community who turned up and helped us raise £639, which was a fantastic amount.

“Overall a great effort by all concerned for a very worthwhile charity.”

The money will go to the Firefighters Charity.
