We’re starting to see a hint of summer round the corner and you’ve once again raised the bar sky high throughout March with some fantastic fundraising events and challenges.
From mountain climbs and Half Marathons, to Car Washes and so much more, you’ve raised vital funds to support people just like you in our fire services community – and we’re so grateful for your ongoing support.
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!
At the weekend Dan Clegg ran the Liverpool Half Marathon as part of his fundraising in full fire kit! He will be doing the London Marathon later in the year as well! Brilliant photos and thank you for supporting @firefighters999 . I'm looking forward to the updates! pic.twitter.com/oDfghlLBEt
