A lightweight wheelchair paid for by the Charity opened up doors for former Fife firefighter David Leeson that he never thought were possible. From coastal rowing to representing his country at Wheelchair Curling, David says he is seeing and doing things he never thought he would when he was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 20 years ago.
If there's anyone who understands the importance of maintaining social connections when retiring from the fire service, it's Ken Seager. The former Chair of the Charity now volunteers to help set up and run one of our Living Well Groups, a networking group for retired fire service personnel.
With three of the four members of the Tomes family in need of serious medical help and their 15-year-old son acting as their carer, The Fire Fighters Charity was here to help. On Young Carers Awareness Day, we share their story with you.
