Following the fire at Downham Market Fire Station, the loss of our fire appliance and appliance bay, both Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service and the local fire crew are determined to carry on business as usual, including the Charity Car Wash planned by the Downham Market crew for this Saturday.
We obviously can no longer do this at the Station but we have had an overwhelming response from many businesses and individuals, who have kindly offered us the use of their premises. To all of you who have made these offers we thank you for your generosity at this time and appreciate the level of commitment you all feel towards your local fire crew.
We have a temporary location for the fire appliance to be based, at the local Police station, and we will be washing cars on Saturday, raising funds forÂ The Fire Fighters CharityÂ at:
Sovereign Way (next to the Ambulance Station)
Trafalgar industrial estateÂ
from 1000 to 1600 (on Saturday 15 March 2014)
There will also be charity buckets at the tills in Tesco's Downham- (also for the FFC). Big thank you to Tesco's for the supplies they sent us over, these were so appreciated.
The Volunteer, based at Downham Station, will also be at Tesco's on Saturday as part of our SOS campaign - giving out advice for senior citizens about smoke alarms.
As you can see, it's business as usual for the Downham Crew - we are very proud of them all. Please, if you can, show them your support.
