Story

Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Wholetime Trainee Course WDS 110 have decided to do Hose Marathon on the 22nd May 2021 to raise money for the Fire Fighters Charity. We will be rolling out and rolling up a 70mm Fire Hose to  the distance of a marathon between us which equates to 1680 lengths in total ! Any donations would be greatly appreciated !

Every year our amazing supporters, donors and fundraisers come together to raise the £10m we need to operate our services in support of the entire UK fire services community. This year, however, the coronavirus pandemic has brought our traditional fundraising to a halt, with the cancellation or postponement of countless events and challenges. Furthermore, the Charity does not meet the criteria outlined by Government in regards to grant support. In all, we estimate that we may raise only around 50% of our usual annual fundraising income this year, which means that we may have to curtail our ambitions and plans for the future, unless we can find an alternate way to raise that income. However, just as we are having to devise new ways to deliver our services and support those in need over this period, we are confident that our inspirational fundraisers can rise to the Fire Family Challenge and turn disappointment and frustration into innovation and income.
