Glossop Fire Station is holding a fundraising car wash on Sunday.

The effort is being held to help pay for pioneering treatment for 29 year old on-call firefighter Stefan Hawcroft who has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour.

Despite being given just weeks to live, a private clinic in Germany can provide Stefan with treatment and his family have set up a go fund me page in the hope of raising the money for him to go.

Fire stations across Derbyshire are taking part in car washes this weekend to help boost funds – including Chapel and Buxton.

The car wash at the Whitfield Park fire station in Glossop will run from 11am to 2pm on Sunday.

All proceeds will go to Stefan Hawcroft, who is from Dronfield – so far an incredible £48,000 has been raised in just nine days for Stefan.

A GoFundMe page has also been set up and donations can be made at
