Crew members at Islington Fire Station raised £316 for a “wonderful” cause by hosting a charity car wash.
The money raised on Saturday has been donated to The Fire Fighters Charity, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year and was formed during the Blitz.
Becky Cooper, a firefighter who joined Islington blue watch six months ago, arranged the event and also raised £575 by doing a charity bike ride last month.
She told the Gazette: “We had amazing effort and the whole watch got involved so I just want to say thank you to everyone.”
Becky added: “The day was pretty successful and we received some generous donations, which was really nice.”
