We have once again seen some incredible achievements from our amazing supporters throughout November and we want to thank each and every one of you.
Whether it’s sponsored walks or sports matches, skydives, craft fairs, car washes or something else, there’s been some incredible highlights over the last month – all of which have gone a long way in supporting our fire services community.
Below are just a few of the many fundraisers we’re so thankful for…
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 Christmas Fundraising and Runners, riders, walkers and more!
Well done to our apprentice firefighters for completing their charity challenge! 👏
Half the group took part in exercises in a gym while the rest walked 18 miles from Mansfield to London Road, all for @firefighters999.
