Register your own Fire Family Fundraiser this year and don’t forget to ask your friends, colleagues and family members to take part in their own event, too!

Whatever you decide to do, please get in touch with your local Community Fundraiser who will be able to advise on whether your fundraising will require any local authority permissions, or if there is anything else you need to do to keep your event safe. They will also provide you with support and guidance with your fundraising.

And remember to post your activity on social media – tagging us in – so we can support your incredible event or challenge. We can’t wait to see what you have planned!

Challenge yourself

Ever dreamt of climbing the Three Peaks? Or perhaps you’ve always wanted to cycle from Lands End to John o’ Groats? Well, this could be the perfect opportunity. A Fire Family Fundraiser can be anything you want it to be, so set yourself a goal – either solo, or with friends – and go for it – the possibilities are endless. Here’s some activities for inspiration:

  • Local or national walking, running or climbing challenges
  • Marathons and other runs
  • Run, swim or cycle the distance between x, y and z
  • 24 hour endurance challenges
  • Overseas or ‘on home soil’ treks
  • Daily distance or monthly target

Brew With A Crew

The Fire Service runs on tea… so what better way to recognise the efforts of your fire services community than with a cup of tea and a slice of cake? Form your own crew – whether that’s with family, children, colleagues or friends – and have a brew, making a donation to our Charity in the process. Here’s everything you need to know about hosting your own Brew With a Crew.

Wellbeing boost

Is there a habit you indulge a little too much in? It might be sweets, chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, smoking…your group could kick the same habit, or set different challenges, and ask people to sponsor your journey. Or how about practising mindfulness and share updates on your progress?

It doesn’t need to be a ‘New year, new you’ activity – you can start your wellbeing challenge any time. Not only will you be raising funds to help your UK fire family, but small changes can make a big difference and boost your mood and wellbeing. So why not give it a try? Here’s some ideas to consider:

  • Give up an unhealthy habit
  • Commit to a new diet or exercise regime
  • Get training for a challenge
  • Take up yoga, Pilates or Tai-Chi
  • Have a declutter and sell your unwanted items

Get crafty

Bring out the art supplies and host a ‘crafternoon’. No matter the season, friends and family can get involved and create something unique – and learn a new skill – in exchange for a donation. Or how about sharing your baked treats at a local event? And don’t forget to share your creations on social media and tag us in.

  • Pottery or flower arranging class
  • Baking or drawing masterclass
  • Strictly Come Dancing for Charity
  • Bake sale

Gaming for Good

If you’re an avid gamer you could set-up a tournament with a group of friends, with everyone donating to join and a prize for the winner. If you have the ability to live stream, you can fundraise for us on your stream using JustGiving or Tiltify.

Celebration fundraiser

Everyone loves a good ‘Knees Up’ and there are plenty of things to celebrate. A milestone event in your local community, commemorating an achievement, or success story…celebrate with colleagues, friends, family and your community while asking for a suggested donation.

  • Donations in lieu of presents
