Our loyal and valued supporters have kicked off a new year with more amazing fundraising challenges and donations – and we couldn’t be prouder or more grateful.
From a gruelling army fitness test, to sponsored runs, a new and high-profile corporate supporter and some incredible recycling across the UK for our Bag it and Bank it campaign, we’ve seen so many supporters going the extra mile. Now we wanted to thank all of you, and wish anyone planning a challenge this year the best of luck!
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!
This morning I completed my challenge, with over 30 seconds to spare! So far £1,145 raised to share between @MindCharity @PoppyLegion @firefighters999
& @HelpforHeroes . Thanks to @LancashireFRS & all that have donated and encouraged. Full story at https://t.co/JZW2HqRHkr pic.twitter.com/ZRKWYZJVJ6

We undertake our delayed December Ascender challenge tomorrow(Sun 16th).
We’ll attempt to climb the 13.5m ladder as many times as possible in 60mins. This is to raise vital funds for @firefighters999 !
How many climbs do you think we’ll manage?@FFC_ScotsandNE @ScottishFee_FFC pic.twitter.com/zMJkyFrk9b
