14 Firefighters face charity challenge in memory of those who sacrificed their lives to help others

Recently, West Ashland Fire Station posted about flooding in an area of Bletchley.

This post was seen by over 20,000 people.

Did you know that during the events of September 11th 2001, firefighters and other emergency service workers saved over 20,000 people from the area before the towers collapsed?

On September 11th 2021 it will mark 20 years since 343 firefighters made the greatest sacrifice to help others.

14 firefighters from across all four different watches at West Ashland Fire Station, will be completing a challenge to raise money for charity in their memory. The challenge consists of :

▪️Wearing full fire kit including breathing apparatus and a Cleveland roll (Length of hose)

▪️6km run from West Ashland to Xscape.

▪️Climbing the equivalent of 9 stories of stairs within Xscape and then descending to finish.

All money raised from online donations goes to The Fire Fighters Charity, which supports injured firefighters and their families.

Physical donations on the day will be collected for the Stephen Sillar foundation. (Basis of the tunnel to towers run)
