The Fire Fighters Charity needs your help!

The Fire Fighters Charity are launching an urgent appeal for new donors after their usual fundraising income has fallen by around £200,000 a month during the lockdown period.

It costs £10 million a year, every year, to keep their doors open and enable them to support the mental, physical and social needs of the UK’s fire services community.

Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic and the cancellation of their entire summer fundraising calendar, fundraising income is currently falling short by around £200,000 a month.

“This is an unprecedented time for The Fire Fighters Charity,” says Chief Executive Dr Jill Tolfrey. “We have never before faced such an extended period of time without any traditional fundraising activity and, for an organisation that is almost entirely funded through the generosity of its supporters, we need to find a way to turn this around.

“I am therefore hoping that this urgent appeal will strike a chord with those generous individuals and every member of our incredible fire service family. From frontline firefighters to support and control staff, retired personnel and everyone for whom we provide our services. We will always be there for you when you need us, but right now we need you. Please start donating today.”

Whether you work on the front line, in support or control, are retired or are a beneficiary of the Charity through other means, they’re here to support you for life.

It could be today, it could be tomorrow, or it could be in twenty years’ time, but when and if that time comes, we will be there for you or your loved ones. The Fire Fighters Charity has supported the fire services community for 77 years, help us make sure they’re here for the next 77.

Help us guarantee the long-term future of the Charity, through this pandemic and beyond. Please donate if you can here.
