Norfolk firefighters’ charity car washes cancelled due to hosepipe ban
Firefighters across Norfolk have cancelled the rest of their planned charity car washes this month ahead of the arrival of Anglian Water's hosepipe ban.
Although the restrictions do not come into effect until April 5, a spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said suspending car washes until a more appropriate time was 'the responsible thing to do'.
He said: 'After much consideration and consultation we have decided to suspend March's charity car washes. Car washes were due to be held at fire stations including King's Lynn, Aylsham, Holt, Sprowston, Gorleston and Fakenham.
'We would like to thank you for your continued support of both our services and the Fire Fighters Charity.'
In place of its popular fundraising events, the fire service has set up a 'Virtual Car Wash' website, where people can still give to the Fire Fighters Charity while helping the county to save water.
