SCOTS Squad star Grado showcased his tag team spirit by taking part in a charity car wash in honour of firefighters.

The TV wrestler, 30, joined crews at Govan Fire Station on Saturday in honour of a colleague who was recently diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.

The event was held to raise funds towards the Firefighters’ charity and MND Scotland in the name of fellow firefighter Brian MacDonald, 42, who was told he had the muscle-wasting illness earlier this year.

Watch manager Ross Pollock, 42, said: “We hold an annual car wash to raise funds for the firefighter charity to help those injured in the line of duty and for rehabilitation and counselling services.

“One of our colleagues Brian MacDonald was recently diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease and we felt so strongly enough about it that we wanted to give a donation to MND Scotland in his name.

“Grado happens to be an ex-firefighter control operator so he still has strong links to the fire service.

“He was amazing and immediately said yes to helping us at the car wash.”

Famous grappler Grado joined 10 watch team members and 20 other helpers as they scrubbed cars as part of the fundraising day.

The actor - real name Graeme Stevely - is currently starring as PC Hugh McKirdy in cult comedy show Scot Squad after a successful stint as neighbour Alan in hit BBC 2 sitcom Two Doors Down.

More than 300 vehicles were rinsed by staff and volunteers at the station, in turn helping to raise more than £1,800 for both charities.

MND sufferer Brian was also there to meet with telly star Grado, who stayed for hours and posed for selfies with fans.

Ross said: “It was a real team effort, Brian was also there and he was so grateful of the cause.

“It was only three or four months ago that he was diagnosed.

“He’s been going through a bit of struggle because he’s having to make adaptations in his life to help with his disability.”

As well as working as a firefighter for 13 years, Brian also helped to coach a youth football team.

He spent years undergoing tests before he was given the devastating diagnosis of MND, earlier this year.

Ross continued: “Brian was very active and a very, very fit man.

“When he came in to tell us he’d been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease we were all very much taken aback.

“Brian came down last night for that and expressed his thanks to the watch.

“It was quite emotional and we hope to help in any way we can.”

Brian said: “I just want to offer a huge thanks to all of those who have helped raise funds for both the firefighters charity and MND Scotland.

“Hopefully we will find a cure for this one day soon.”
