The last month has seen some incredible fundraising events from our dedicated supporters – and we want to say a huge thank you to each and every one of you.
Without you, we simply couldn’t continue to do what we do every day. Whether it’s been running, cycling, climbing in memory of those who lost their lives on 9/11, open days on station or even jumping out of a plane, you’ve gone above and beyond over the last four weeks to raise funds for the Charity.
Here are just a few of the many fundraisers we’re so thankful for…
The world came together one week ago to remember all those that lost their lives in the 9/11 terror attacks – one of the worst firefighter disasters in history.

Good luck to our firefighters who today are set to scale Scafell Pike, England’s highest peak, in full firefighting gear, including breathing apparatus. The climbers, mostly from Grangetown White Watch, are raising money for @MindCharity and the @firefighters999. ???? pic.twitter.com/wgf2oAVbx9
