Firefighters in appeal for your old clothes

RESIDENTS of Wargrave are being urged to donate their old clothes to the Fire Fighters Charity.

RESIDENTS of Wargrave are being urged to donate their old clothes to the Fire Fighters Charity.

Clothes can be dropped off at the village fire station in Victoria Road throughout this month and they will then be collected and recycled by the charity.

The proceeds will go towards fire service personnel and their families, including therapy and rehabilitation for injured firefighters.

Wargrave fire station is one of 11 in Berkshire which is taking part in the scheme. Watch manager Sarah Lewis said: “The Fire Fighters Charity provides a whole range of fantastic services but depends entirely on donations to do so.

“Recycling textiles is a really simple way to help a great cause and get rid of some unwanted clutter at the same time.



“There will also be a bit of healthy competition as the fire station that raises the most money through textile recycling will be awarded a prize by the charity, so why not support your local firefighters and see if you can help them win?”
