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

Charity Registration No. 1093387

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.  Last year we experienced the amazing support of firefighters, and saw what they put themselves through, when Wiser Recycling’s Cambridgeshire facility burnt down. Because of this, the directors of Wiser Group are keen to raise funds for the Fire Fighters Charity. The national charity supports over 5,000 former and current fire and rescue personnel each year with services that include rehabilitation, nursing and family support.

My brother Dominic and I kicked off the summer of challenges on Saturday 29th April with the Three Peaks Fell Race, 23 miles of fell running with over 1,600 metres of ascent and descent of three of the highest summits in Yorkshire.

From 12th to 16th June, we will be joined by fellow director Charles Thomas and friend Alistair Whitehead to then take on a cycling challenge across the Pyrenees. We will cover over 400km of road and 8,000m of climbing in four days including one of the most famous climbs of the Tour de France, Col du Tourmalet.

There will be more challenges - watch this space, the summer in only just beginning!

We are also supporting a local charity, the Raptor Foundation, to whom we will make an offline donation. The Cambridgeshire charity, of which I am a Trustee, provides 24 hour care and rehabilitation for injured raptors, helping to support these increasingly rare species.

Please support our summer of challenges with a donation and help us raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity.   

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
