Rothesay’s retained firefighters swapped their high-pressure hoses for buckets and sponges on Saturday at a charity car wash in the town.
The event, at the Co-operative’s Rothesay supermarket in Bridge Street, was one of many taking place across Scotland this week to raise vital funds for The Fire fighters Charity, which helps thousands of serving and retired fire service personnel and their families.
Regional fundraiser for Scotland Jan Mattison said: “We are delighted that so many of our fire stations are getting involved and would urge local people to come along and support the day.
“Firefighting can be dangerous, stressful and traumatic. That’s why The Fire Fighters Charity is here for every one of the UK’s serving and retired members of fire and rescue service – and their families.
“It costs £9 million a year to keep our charity running. With no government funding, we rely completely on donations and goodwill.”
