Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Please help the Mid and West Wales Firefighter recruits raise as many funds for two very worthy causes, they anticipate climbing 2090 steps in full kit with Breathing apparatus and equipment I.e tools, hose etc.. this represents the amount of steps climbed by the American Firefighters in the September 11th World trade centre Rescue attempt..
The FireFighters Charity
Are the UK's leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired firefighters, fire personnel and their families. Their vision is to make a positive difference by supporting people in the fire and rescue community when they are in need. Over the years, they have helped hundreds of thousands of individuals by providing world-class treatment and support services.
It costs over £9 million per year to keep the Charity running, and are completely reliant upon donations and fundraising, so your support is very much needed.
The role of a firefighter is one of bravery, loyalty and devotion to public service. Just like firefighters, they are passionate about their work and the services we provide to the men and women who risk their lives to save ours.
Nell is a 5yr old little girl who woke up recently with excruciating pain in her neck, after having scans it was confirmed she had a rare tumor inside her spinal cord and has grown amongst all the major nerves and blood vessels, so any signifcant growth or removal of this tumor will cause paralysis or even Nell will end up unable to breath for herself.The words the doctors used “it couldn’t be in a worse place. So far the doctors at The Heath hospital have had to do a life threatening operation to just get tissue for a biopsy so that they could get a diagnosis, which was successful but the operation has left Nell unable to walk and now has no use of her left arm at all.
