Calling all fire stations

We are pleased to announce that The Fire Fighters Charity January Bag it and Bank It Recycling Championship is back for 2022. We're asking stations across the country to see how much clothing and textiles they and their local community can recycle during the month of January and we’re aiming to beat last years’ total amount by raising more than £80,000.

The competition is once again split into regions and the best station in England, Wales and Scotland will receive a prize for their Service as well as the coveted 'Rag' trophy.

We are also extending the competition to find the best recycling station from each Fire and Rescue Service. The winners will receive a certificate, giving them bragging rights over their neighbouring station!
