The community has rallied round to help raise money for a devastated farmer who has “lost everything” in the Little Marlow fire - including organising a charity car wash tomorrow.

Little Marlow Resident’s Association has set up a fundraising page online to help a family who lived close to where the fire started - and have so far managed to raise more than £3,000.

The page says: “Thanks to the swift action of emergency services the fire was bought under control before it reached Marlow, however a number of homes were impacted and one family have lost everything. This has been devastating for those involved and our community would like to help.”

A charity car wash, which will be held on Sunday between 9am and 5pm at the Wyevale Garden Centre on Pump Lane South, will also raise money to help the farmer and his family and others affected by the devastating blaze.

Marlow organisations showed true community spirit in the aftermath of the fire - with dozens of companies throwing open their doors to welcome in those who needed tea, coffee, food or somewhere to shelter for the night.

Cathy Stewart, a volunteer at The Marlow Youth Community Club was so moved by the news of the fire she opened up the community centre for those who needed help. She said: “I thought how awful it must be to be so close to that fire.”
