Story

Thank you for donating.

My brother had a love of extreame sports and although we had lots in common, in this respect we were very different.  Which means that I am doing something totally crazy and out of my comfort zone to raise money for the Fire Fighters Charity.  Team Bert are doing this in memory of Alan who died on duty at Shirley Towers in 2010.  The whole of Hampshire Fire and Rescue and the Fire Fighters Charity supported us over the past few years and we hope you can support us now to give something back.

The Fire Fighters Charity offers services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired fire fighters, fire personnel and their families.

The role of a fire fighter is one of bravery, loyalty and devotion to public service. Just like fire fighters, this charity is passionate about their work and the services they provide to the men and women who risk their lives to save ours.

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 - We raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.

If I haven't thanked you personally for your sponsorship, sorry it's probably because I don't have your contact details. So to anyone who has sponsored me THANK YOU, it means a lot to me, my family and the Fire Fighters Charity.

Raising money for

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. To find out more, please visit www.firefighterscharity.org.uk.
