Help the Fire fighter charity for your chance to win one of these great prizes

Every 30 seconds in the UK fire fighters are called to an incident, risking their lives to save others, but sadly they often sustain physical injuries whilst carrying out their duties. The Fire Fighters Charity is here for fire fighters during their times of need. The Charity offers vital support services across the UK for all fire fighters, assisting in excess of 17,500 individuals every year. Our modern, dynamic and award-winning charity has three UK centres, located in Cumbria, Devon and West Sussex, which provide therapy, rehabilitation and recuperation facilities. Our pioneering Beneficiary Support Services offers local and remote assistance to fire service personnel in need nationwide – providing solutions to real life problems. It costs over £9 million every year to keep the Charity running, and with no government funding, we are completely reliant upon donations and fundraising, so your support is very much needed

I'm an operational Watch Commander within the fire service. Having witnessed first hand the devastation when operational fire fighters get injured (or worse), whilst doing a job helping others, I have decided to comitt my time and dedication to help raise money for those individuals and their families .
The only support and rehabilitaion we receive after such an event is funded by the fire fighters charity; our charity is not supported by the government 
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
So please dig deep and donate please;

Ive never done this sort of thing before but it is a charity in which i truley believe in, they need our help and im really hoping that you would love to help this great cause too. Steven is a friend of ours from school and when he told us what he is about to do to raise much needed funds for the Fire Fighters charity i knew that i wanted to help.
Steve is gearing up for the most emotional race of his life - retracing the steps of one of the heroes of the 9/11 attacks.Steve, who is watch commander at Solihull fire station, but covers at Cradley Heath, will take part in the race on Sunday September 25 and hopes to raise £1.5k for the UK Fire Fighters Charity.
The 36-year-old, who will complete the course in full fire kit and breathing apparatus, said: “I decided to do the run because its the tenth anniversary of 9/11 and to help the charity which helps injured firemen or the families of firefighters killed on duty relies on donations.
I am overwhelmed by who im happy to call my friends who have so generously offered prizes to those of you who Donate as little as just £1.00!
