SHE may only be seven, but Hollie Savage has already had a taste of being a firefighter.

She helped out with a charity car wash at Wantage fire station over the weekend.

She joined her dad, retained firefighter Will Savage, 38, of Wasborough Avenue, on a tour of the station.

And with 40 cars being cleaned, the event raised £317 for the Fire Fighters Charity.

Mr Savage said: “It was really good. We were busy all day.

“I have had a couple of colleagues benefit from the Fire Fighters Charity – a friend of mine with heart problems made use of their facilities.”

Mr Savage hasn’t asked Hollie if she would like to be a firefighter, but she certainly has the lineage for it.

He said: “She has always shown a big interest in it. Her mum, Emma, used to be a firefighter at Wantage.”

Anyone interested in joining the service should go to oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/public-site/fire-and-rescue-service
