Bedfordshire’s fire chief will be hiking up Mount Kilimanjaro to raise cash for charity.
Chief Fire Officer Paul Fuller CBE will complete the seven-day trek in Kenya this September to raise funds for The Fire Fighters Charity and Children’s Burns Trust.
Ten-thousand pounds is the target for the Chief, who is trustee at both charities.
CFO Fuller said: “This is a huge challenge. I know it will be tough but it will be worth it to raise much-needed funds for these two great charities.
“Both charities are extremely important to me. They have moving and inspiring stories to tell of the life-changing work they do to support burns survivors and those in the fire and rescue community.”
The whole expedition will take about seven days, travel through four different climate zones and reach extreme altitude at almost 6,000 metres.
The Fire Fighters Charity provides services that enhance the quality of life for serving and retired firefighters, fire personnel and their families. The charity receives no government funding and relies on the generosity and enthusiasm of its supporters.
Children’s Burns Trust is dedicated to providing rehabilitation support for burned and scald injured children and their families, as well as prevention and awareness campaigns for which there is little or no national funding.
