Firefighters turned their hoses onto cars at the Sainsbury’s store in Bourne to raise charity cash.

The team of seven from Bourne Fire Station used buckets, sponges and a hose from their fire engine to clean 45 vehicles on Saturday.

They raised £450 for The Fire Fighters Charity, which provides health and wellbeing services for 
firefighters.

Shoppers were also able to sit in a fire engine as part of the event which takes place annually.

Alex Grant, a firefighter who took part, said: “It was hard work but it was a lot of fun.”

The store has also been raising cash for the charity this year.
