Elmswell’s fire crew’s latest fund raising effort makes a clean £450 for village charities
Elmswell’s fund raising fire fighters rolled out their hoses on Saturday for a car wash in aid of the village’s charities.
The on-call crew of Brian Hawes, Jon Pugh, Paul Kerridge, Mark Smith, Nick Mitchell, Steven Reid and David Pitwood (who is not in the picture) raised £450 with the wash.
The crew ranged from Brian who has been a fireman for 35 years to Mark who has been with them for a year, though his grandfather was also a fireman in the village.
Fortunately, they were not called out halfway through washing someone’s car.
They also run monthly bingo nights and do bag packing in the village co-op as well as other fund raisers.
Last year they raised £8,500 which was distributed round the village charities
