FIREFIGHTERS will be swapping their hoses for sponges tomorrow (Saturday) in aid of a good cause.

A charity car wash is being held at the Birmingham Road station between 10am and 2pm with proceeds going towards the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Redditch Blue Watch will be on duty and will be supported by members of Redditch Young Firefighters.

Firefighter Neil Teasdale said: "We hope people will stop by at the fire station to have their car washed on Saturday and help us to raise funds for this worthwhile cause."
