FIREFIGHTERS and volunteers in Redditch teamed up on Saturday (July 23) to wash cars and raise cash for charity.
The group raised £864 in just fours hours by cleaning cars and were overwhelmed by people’s generosity.
Firefighter Liam Duffy, who’s daughter Amber was treated at Birmingham Children’s Hospital for heptoblastoma and a huge tumour on her liver when she was just seven months old, is on a fundraising mission to give something back to the hospital that saved his little girl’s life and organised.
He said: “People had clearly made the effort to come and it was a tough day – we certainly worked up a sweat with so many people coming along to support us, but they were all so generous with their donations, it was definitely worth it.”
The money will be split 50/50 with The Fire Fighters Charity and Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Liam and his friends are running events throughout the year to raise money for the hospital and have a skydive planned for September.
