The Fire Fighters Charity

We provide life-enhancing services to the fire & rescue community

Charity Registration No. 1093387


When I first started as a Firefighter 2 years ago, I had an idea that one day I would like to run a marathon in full fire kit. Not such a strange ambition I discovered as someone had already done it and become a record breaker. He inspired me to give it a go myself and I am hoping his advice will help me along the way.

This is going to be an epic challenge and I hope to raise lots of money for The Firefighters Charity who do amazing work for Firefighters and their families, some of my colleagues have personally benefitted from their help.

Please sponsor me! Thank you!
