Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service crews around the county have hosted over 20 car washes in aid of the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
Paul Milburn, Station Manager and Charity Liaison Lead said: “We would like to thank our local communities for supporting our car washes so far and helping to raise a fantastic amount to support Ukrainian people and communities.”
The conflict has so far led to 4.3 million Ukrainians to flee the country, the majority going to Poland, with 7.1 million displaced within the country itself.
Milburn continued: “I’d encourage those local to Maryport and Millom to come along to their car washes on Saturday, April 9, to support such a good cause.
“The people of Ukraine continue to be in our thoughts during this time.
“We stand in solidarity as we do whatever we can to support all those affected by the devastating and tragic events.”
So far, the Service has raised over £10,000 for the appeal, with two further car washes yet to take place on Saturday, April 9, at Maryport and Millom Fire Stations:
- Maryport Fire Station – 10:00 – 15:00
- Millom Fire Station – 09:00 – 12:30
