Scores of cars made tracks for Spalding Fire Station on Saturday as people rallied to the aid of a firefighter battling a brain tumour.

Stefan Hawcroft (29) has been told there’s nothing more the NHS can do and his last hope is pioneering immunotherapy treatment in Germany.

His family have launched a £250,000 appeal to fund the treatment and – on Saturday – Spalding firefighters held a car wash to boost the fundraising.

Spalding firefighter Petra Barneveld-Taylor said: “We raised a whopping £1,171 at the car wash, the most we have ever raised at a car wash.”

The original total stood at £1,150 but a couple of late donations took it higher.

Firefighters are also staging a charity football match at Spalding United’s ground, KO at 7pm on Wednesday, April 4.

It’s a Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue under 30s and over 30s match ... and comedian and Soccer AM co-host Lloyd Griffith has made the team.
