Dunstable's Firecrews Soap-Up For Nepal
17 May 2015, 06:08
A charity car-wash today has been organised by a Bedfordshire firefighter who was left stranded in Nepal by the first major quake in April.
Clive Wilkinson was left stranded in Nepal after the first major quake on the 25th of April brought landslides across much of the region, cutting of his route back.
Clive and his wife Heather were on a trekking holiday when the earthquake struck. The pair were rescued after being cut off, and have now safely returned home.
But the experience left a profound impact on the couple, who've now set up a fund-raising page on the You Caring site; their aim to raise £5000 and they've already raised more than £1,750 so far.
Today in Dunstable, the charity car was at the fire station will add to that total.
You can get your car washed and help the couple raise more funds to help those still suffering extreme hardship in Nepal after the quake at the Dunstable Fire Station (off Brewers Hill Road), 10am - 2pm
