Firefighters’ car wash is family affair
12:00pm Tuesday 18th March 2014 in News
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.”
