160 Mile Walk, 6 July 2023
Independence for Idris
Campaign by Just4Children (RCN 1164473)
Just4Children are fundraising for Idris who would benefit from extra therapy and specialised equipment to aid his treatments.


One of the crew at Axminster Fire Station, Firefighter Josh Moore and his fiancé Sammy are raising essential funds to support their little boy Idris.

Idris was born at 30 weeks, due to the trauma of the birth, Idris suffered damage to his brain which has been diagnosed as Cerebral Palsy with Spastic Diplegia.

Idris is unable to stand unaided, walk or transition from different levels on his own. Josh and Sammy aim is to work on building his leg strength so that he gains the skills to eventually be able to use a walking aid. In order to make this aim a reality, Idris needs specialist equipment and additional physiotherapy sessions.

So as a crew we want to support raising those funds in anyway we can!

This challenge will be a 160mile walk from one end of Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service (DSFRS) to the opposite. Starting off at DSFRS most southern station walking up to the most northern DSFRS Station whilst stopping off in over 20 neighbouring Stations along the way! Oh and it’ll be done in four days whilst wearing Fire Kit including BA!

The team taking on this challenge is FF Shillingford & FF Goetz. With WM Turner, CM J Brooker, CM L Brooker, FF Bebb, FF Bearpark, FF Chenery, FF Garret & FF Moore supporting throughout the four days. Plus along the way they will be joined by a host of other Firefighters from across DSFRS!

So please donate what you can and help the Axminster Station support its very own FF Moore for Independence for Idris!
