From cycle rides and charity football matches, to Car Washes, a little girl’s sponsored run and much more, our supporters have made our 80th birthday month every bit the celebration we dreamed of!

We’ve seen some fantastic fundraising events and challenges over the last four weeks, from FRSs right across the country, so a huge thank you for all you’ve done – and continue to do for us – this year.

Just one of the many highlights came on Saturday 19, as several members of Staffordshire Living Well Group joined forces with the duty watch at Leek Fire Station to raise funds for us and Staffordshire Emergency Services Humanitarian Aid Association. Further events are now planned for other Living Well Group venues at Newcastle and Lichfield Fire Stations.

Below are just a few more of the highlights, as well as quotes from our donors…
