Preston firefighters are to take part in a charity ladder climb that will take place on 15 September.


Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service‘s new whole-time recruits will be taking part in the ladder climb.

The 32 recruits will be doing this challenge at the end of their course.

The aim of the ladder climb is to raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity.

The Fire Fighters Charity provides vital support services to fire service personnel and their families when they need it most.

The Charity’s three specialist centres across the UK offer fire fighters the help they need to recover from injury, surgery or illness, so they can get back to their job of saving lives.

The recruits will be tackling a 13.5m ladder as many times as they can throughout the day.

The event will be held at the Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service’s Washington Hall Training Centre, Euxton, Chorley.

You can donate to the charity online by the Virgin Money Giving page.

You can also keep up to date with Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service by following them on Twitter and Facebook.
