Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As you probably know we sadly lost Alan in April 2010 at a fire in Shirley Towers.  The impact of the events of that night were felt in many ways. Not only at home, with his family, but especially with his colleagues in the service. Right from the start the Firefighters Charity was there to offer support and assistance where and when it was needed.  Something I myself was very grateful for. 

As such we have come together as 'Team Bert' to raise some money for this great cause.  Those of you who knew Alan will remember how passionate he was about 'the rope pack'! Therefore what better way to honour his memory than to abseil 300ft off the Spinnaker Tower! 

I have admit to being a little bit nervous at the prospect, however I'm pleased to say that I won't be doing it alone and know that the other members of the team will be just as nervous! 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

Well.... we did it! The view from the top was amazing and we were very lucky with the weather! However, I am pleased to be down and to have a much needed large cup of tea! Thank you to everyone who sponsored me! Your support is very much appreciated. xx

The Fire Fighters Charity

The Fire Fighters Charity

Charity Registration No. 1093387

Every 30 seconds in the UK fire fighters are called to an incident, risking their lives to save others, but sadly they often sustain physical injuries whilst carrying out their duties. The Fire Fighters Charity is here for fire fighters during their times of need. The Charity offers vital support services across the UK for all fire fighters, assisting in excess of 17,500 individuals every year. Our modern, dynamic and award-winning charity has three UK centres, located in Cumbria, Devon and West Sussex, which provide therapy, rehabilitation and recuperation facilities. Our pioneering Beneficiary Support Services offers local and remote assistance to fire service personnel in need nationwide – providing solutions to real life problems. It costs over £9 million every year to keep the Charity running, and with no government funding, we are completely reliant upon donations and fundraising, so your support is very much needed.
