The Charity was delighted to receive notification this week of a £2,500 gift from The Patron’s Fund, the charitable fund set up to acknowledge the work of the charitable organisations for which Her Majesty, The Queen acts as a Patron, on the occasion of her 90th birthday.

The Fund distributed around £750,000 between nearly 300 charities and other organisations in the UK and the Commonwealth, monies that were raised following generous donations from a range of supporters; including individual donors, businesses, schools, community groups and the proceeds from The Patron’s Lunch, the event on the Mall last June.

Dr Jill Tolfrey, Chief Executive of The Fire Fighters Charity, said of the gift; “We are proud and honoured to have the Queen as the Patron of our Charity. This generous gift will help to provide life enhancing services to firefighters in need across the UK.”
