Staff at Garston Fire Station raised more than £500 over the Easter Bank Holiday by washing cars to help a three-year-old girl with a heart condition go on her dream holiday.
Olivia Scarman is the daughter of a close friend of a firefighter working at the fire station.
She was born with hypo-plastic left heart syndrome and given very little chance of living by doctors.
Olivia has reached the age of three and a half after receiving treatment by Great Ormond Street Hospital, however, no further procedures are available.
Garston Fire Station tweeted: “Garston white watch ran a very successful car wash despite the weather raising £530 which will be split 50/50 with the Fire charity and Olivia go fund me page. An outside raffle has raised a whopping £270. Thank you to @Watford_Whites @HertsFireVol and all that helped.”
Peter Wilson, watch commander at the fire station, says Olivia’s heart is in failure so there is limited time for her to visit relatives in Cornwall.
The car wash was held on Monday, April 2.
