2023 marks 80 years since The Fire Fighters Charity was formed during the second world war, providing eight decades of life-changing support, fundraising activities and hugely generous donations from supporters.

From supporting the bereaved families of WWII firefighters to providing online support to thousands of members of the UK’s fire family today, te charity has come a long way since 1943.

The Charity is set to celebrate the milestone with a series of fundraisers, corporate events and celebrations, and is asking for help to make it a year to remember.

From January, the organisation will be sharing the achievements, memories, photos, special moments and recollections of beneficiaries and supporters and has asked for anyone who has been supported by them, fundraised or have any kind of special memory, to reach out.

The fundraising group has asked for anyone with memories, photos and thoughts to contact [email protected] and they will be added them to a UK-wide collection over the course of the year.
