IT poured down all day and they finished as wet as the cars they washed but for Danielle Petruzzelli and crew at Stalybridge fire station their efforts were rewarded.
The six-hour event raised £1,300 to be divided between Hyde based men’s mental health charity Mentell and the Fire Fighters Charity.
Mentell was started following the suicide of Stalybridge resident Danielle’s 26-year-old brother, Vittorio, in April 2017.
“It’s a charity local to Hyde and Stockport and it supports men going through anxiety and depression who need emotional support,” explained Danielle.
“It means guys know there is a support system in place out there for them.
“We have had so much support since Mentell started, including government funding, it has been overwhelming.
“The fire fighters attended to my brother on that night and gave us a few extra days with him. So, proceeds have gone half and half with them and Mentell.
“Thank you to all of my dear friends and family and everyone else who came to get their car washed.
“And thank you to Stalybridge fire men for joining forces with us in support of Mentell and the Fire Fighters charity.”
