Firefighters at Honiton Fire Station hold charity car wash.

Firefighters in Honiton came out in force to show their support for the family of victims of a fatal fire in the town.

They held a car wash last Saturday to raise funds for the Lee Close family.

This is one of the latest fundraising events that have been held in the community and raised a whopping £810.

The firefighters have thanked Tesco and Homebase for donating sponges and cleaning items and also all the people who took their cars along on the day.

People in the town have rallied together to help the family by donating clothing, furniture and other items. A bank account has also been set up for donations.

The house fire at Lee Close claimed the lives of Rosie Bennellick, 17, Harvey Bennellick, aged three, and Rosie’s boyfriend Andy Gunn, 18, from Bishopsteignton.

The Mayor of Honiton, Councillor David Foster, is hosting a quiz at the Conservative Club next Saturday (April 27), and money raised will go towards the appeal.
