You’ve inspired us once again with some amazing fundraising challenges, events and donations over the last month and we want to say a massive thank you to anyone taking part.
From an SAS-inspired challenge to one woman’s epic bike ride in memory of a colleague and an absolutely incredible £10,000 donation, plus so much more, you’ve raised the bar sky high in February!
Below are just a few highlights…
And don’t forget, you can share your amazing fundraising achievements, encourage others and share ideas on MyFFC. We have a series of dedicated groups you can join, from Fire Family Challenge and Challengers to Runners, riders, walkers and more!

Following the major fire at MCD in Kidderminster (Dec), the business next door (John Tainton) today made an amazing £10k donation the Ff Charity, in recognition that Ff's saved so many jobs and livelihoods. Thank you Taintons, and to all those that worked so hard at the incident pic.twitter.com/85BmZz7PiK

A group of firefighters completed the Fan Dance, an SAS selection route this weekend to raise money for charity ??
The team raised £1,214 which will be split 50/50 between @firefighters999 and Hardwick Boxing Academy.
Thanks to everyone that supported them along the way ❤️ pic.twitter.com/D5JbhclV2L

Just over a year ago we shared the story of On-Call @WarksFireRescue firefighter, Alison Insley. Now Alison is taking on another amazing challenge for us – cycling on a static bike for 32 miles a day, in memory of Kieran Amos.

This time next week I’ll be starting 24 hours running the @LooePioneers 10 miler route to raise money for @firefighters999(hopefully in better weather). It seemed like a good idea last year, now I’m not so sure? https://t.co/Vkedn0MdMs#fundraising #firefamilychallenge pic.twitter.com/8KZsVq7B8y
