St Ives and Huntingdon stations took part in Cambridgeshire Fire Rescue Services annual car wash. The crews spent several hours cleaning muddy cars, 4x4s, and event a Mustang GT Convertible and an Aston Martin. Watch commander Phil Thacker, from St Ives Fire Station, said: We had lots of cars; a muddy Land Rover, even a Mustang GT Convertible and an Aston Martin - but we were a bit nervous cleaning those so we put the brushes down for those two and just used sponges. Huntingdon firefighters saw a steady stream of cars go through their station, raising more than £800 on the day. Firefighter Leon Collins, who organised the car wash, said: It went fantastically well. Last year we raised about £400 and I think part of the reason we did so well this year was because the event was on the local radio every day for a week beforehand.
