Northfield firefighters will be joining with fundraisers from a Rubery charity this coming Saturday for a fundraising car wash.

You can call in at Northfield Fire Station between 10am and 1pm on Saturday 24th March for a car wash. All funds raised will go to A Trek for Owen.

Owen Evans

A Trek for Owen was established by family and friends in honour of Rubery schoolboy Owen Evans. The Beaconside Junior’s pupil died from aplastic anaemia at just 9 years old.

The charity has already raised a staggering £20,000 for the Aplastic Anaemia Trust through big events such as a band night & a charity auction, smaller events based at Owen’s school, individual fundraising activities by Owen’s school friends and donations.

In addition, a large group of Owen’s family and friends completed last year’s BRMB Walkathon, raising £6,500 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital where Owen died in 2010, just three months after being diagnosed with the disease.

This May, Owen’s mum Susan, friend Lexi Sutton and Beaconside headteacher Paul Freear, will walk part of the Great Wall of China for Owen. You can sponsor them by visiting the charity’s JustGiving page.
