Story


Firefighters from Bridport and Maiden Newton Fire Station attempt to push themselves to the very limit by taking on the National 3 Peak Challenge. The goal of our effort is to raise awareness of the Firefighter Charity and raise money for its support.

This challenge involves walking the highest mountains in Scotland, England, and Wales within 24 hours.

The event starts in Scotland at Ben Nevis, which at, 1,344 meters or 4,409ft is the tallest of the three. From there the expedition will drive south into the Lake District where we climb Scafell Pike (978m, 3,209ft). The final of the three is the Welsh mountain, Snowdon (1085 m, 3,560 ft). The crew will set off on Saturday 24th June 2023 with the aim of raising £3000 for the Firefighter Charity. 

In the course of the following weeks, we will introduce you to our entire team as well keep you updated about our progress in training which has already begun so keep an eye on updates 👇.



About The Fire Fighter Charity

The Fire Fighters Charity is there for every member of the UK’s fire service community, helping them all to live healthier and happier throughout their lives.

And it’s not just about firefighters. The Charity supports past and present fire and rescue service personnel, whatever their role, as well as spouses, families and many other eligible individuals across a diverse community of around 300,000 people.

Our fire and rescue services are always there for us when we need them, helping us at the lowest and most terrifying moments of our lives. To do that, they need to be physically and mentally well, at work and at home.

The Charity’s role is therefore to ensure that it’s there for them, for life, working as their health and well-being companion, supporting every aspect of their lives to ensure that they can be there for you when you need them.

The Charity offers a range of services to help the whole fire family look after their well-being – from expert support and advice over the phone, online or in-person, to support groups for retirees, a Wellbeing Hub full of online resources, and much more.

However, it couldn’t provide any of this life-changing support without your help, so please donate what you can now to make a huge difference to the UK’s fire family.
