Through our OneUp campaign we’re asking you, and everyone who donates monthly through their payroll to increase your donation by just £1 a month. We will start this from your July 2022 pay, unless you let us know that you do not wish this to happen. Simply complete the form below to opt out before Friday 17 June 2022.

Your additional pound will go towards helping people like Mick, a retired Merseyside firefighter who contacted us for support when he was struggling after losing his wife to leukaemia then having to navigate his own health complications and the loneliness of lockdown in 2020.
“You were there for me when I needed it most – and helped me move forward with my life now.”
Mick, Retired Merseyside Firefighter

By uplifting your monthly donations, you will ensure that we can continue to be there for more people like Mick, and others in our fire family who reach out to us for help.
“The combined income from our regular donors form the bulk of our annual income, so it’s no exaggeration to say that they are our lifeblood,” says Charity Chief Executive Dr Jill Tolfrey. “Having a steady, predictable source of income each month allows us to deliver our services and plan ahead. However, as with all other Charities, we have seen a dramatic reduction in our ability to fundraise throughout the past two years due to the pandemic. It means that we have to make every pound work as hard as possible. I hope our regular donors can therefore appreciate the vital need to increase donations in line with these challenging times and in order for us to continue to deliver the high standard of support our beneficiaries have come to expect.”
If you do not wish to increase your donation by one pound a month, you have until Friday 17 June 2022 to complete the opt-out form below. If you are happy to increase, you don’t need to take any further action. Your first increased donation will take effect from your July 2022 pay.
Please note that this increase does not include regular donations started on or after 17 November 2021, pension contributions, or payments made as part of The Fire Fighters Charity’s Monthly Lottery.
