Retired County Durham firefighter Harry Binyon is one of two people to be recognised in the New Years Honours List 2020 for their contribution to The Fire Fighters Charity. We sit down to hear why he's spent 40 years raising money for us.
After her firefighter husband passed away suddenly in April, panic attacks were ruining Suzanne Constable's life. She agreed to contact the Charity and see what they could do for her, but she had no idea just how much she would take away from her week at Marine Court.
Emma Hughes has just become our first Charity Ambassador, a new voluntary role that aims to increase awareness of The Fire Fighters Charity. And it's all in memory of her dad, Graham, a firefighter with Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue, who passed away in 2003.
When a change of circumstance led to him living in his mum's shed, Alistair McNab contacted the Charity's Welfare Services Team. They supported his application for a council flat, and helped him to furnish it. Now he's looking forward to a very different Christmas to last year.
When Hayward's Heath firefighter Mark Butler passed away in May, he left behind him a legacy that will never be forgotten in Sussex. His daughter, Megan, shares how the Charity helped her process her grief in the months that followed, and why she'll always see West Sussex Fire and Rescue as her extended family.
The charity offers a broad range of services which you may have access to depending on your individual needs
