We are twenty four of Kent Fire and Rescue Service’s newest recruits and on Thursday 9th May, we will climb the height of Mount Everest on ladders at Westwood Cross Shopping Centre.
That's a height of 8,848 meters and we will be wearing approx. 30KG of fire safety kit.
We are tackling this challenge in order to raise money for two charities, Demelza Hospice Care for Children and the Fire Fighters Charity.
This page is to donate for Demelza Hospice Care for Children, and the link at the end is for The Fire Fighters Charity page.
The event will kick off at 10:30 and the aim is to finish by the end of the afternoon. All are welcome to come and cheer us on, and to donate anything they can towards the two good causes.
A little bit about Demelza;
Demelza provides specialist care and emotional support for children with terminal conditions and their loved ones, so they can enjoy their time together as a family, for as long as they have.
“We care for children with a range of different conditions, some of which are very complex and so rare, they have no name. Every year our work is a lifeline to over 750 children and their families throughout Kent, South East London and East Sussex. As a charity, we’re almost entirely dependent on the generosity of our supporters to provide the funds that keep our services going”
Needless to say the work both of these charities carry out is incredible, we ask you to dig deep and support our charity event.
