Would you help one of your mates if they really needed it? This is Jamie, a firefighter from Northampton. He fell 12 and a half metres on to a concrete floor, shattering his spine. Thanks to his mates – including thousands of firefighters he's never met from across the UK – he got the help he needed from The Fire Fighters Charity to get back on his feet.
