Kingdown pupils and Warminster firefighters join forces for charity car wash
11:00am Monday 30th September 2013 in Latest News
Warminster firefighters are teaming up with students from Kingdown School to hold a charity car wash this weekend.
The event, which will take place on Saturday, will be held at Warminster Fire Station in The Portway between 10am and 2pm.
The students will be drawn from Everest 2014, a team of 24 young people and three staff members from the school who are busy fundraising for an expedition to Mount Everest in December next year.
Watch Manager Chris Trimby explained: “Everest 2014 will be an amazing experience for the students, but they have also set themselves the target of raising money for Children’s Hospice South West and Dorothy House Hospice.
“The team will be working with local firefighters to wash cars, and we will be splitting the proceeds between their causes and our own Fire Fighters Charity.”
As well as getting their cars cleaned, local people will be able to find out more about Everest 2014 by talking to the students, while the firefighters can advise on home fire safety and how to join Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service as an on-call firefighter.
