The Fire Fighters Charity logoLet firefighters wash your car for charity'Pay what you like' at up to 1,000 fire stations

Mar 2017

We're always on the hunt for smokin' hot deals and we've a burning need to share this one...

This month, firefighters will wash your car in return for a donation to The Fire Fighters Charity. Up to 1,000 fire stations are taking part on selected dates throughout March (mostly Saturdays).

See what to expect in our video below:

To find your nearest, see the map of car wash locations and dates on the charity's site. And even if there's none local to you right now, do check back as more could be added later in the month.

You won't be able to book a slot, just drive up on the correct date - though expect to queue if it's popular, and of course remember the firefighters could be called away in an emergency.

Some fire stations may recommend a minimum £5 donation, but this is only a guide and not a strict requirement. The charity says you should just give whatever you're comfortable with.

The Fire Fighters Charity says the vast majority of firefighters will be wearing their uniforms (we thought some of you'd be interested, so we asked), and fire engine hoses will probably be used, but do go prepared for less excitement as it could just be sponges and buckets.

Of course, not all firefighters are experts at cleaning cars (their skills are in other areas), so it'll likely be a quick shampoo and rinse - not the full works - but it's a fun way of helping charity.

What is The Fire Fighters Charity?

The Fire Fighters Charity provides injured and ill UK firefighters with help such as psychological therapy and physio to help them recover and return to work as quickly as possible.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link.
