Hi,

As many of you will already know, I'm a full time firefighter with Central Scotland Fire & Rescue Service as a Crew Commander.
 
My best m8 who serves with the Edinburgh Airport Fire Service asked me recently to do a little project for them.
 
I've just finished designing a website for the Edinburgh Airport Fire Service guys who are actively involved in their local community as far as charity events and activities go :-

http://www.edinburghafs.co.uk

On the 18th and 19th June 2008, a team of firefighters from Edinburgh Airport Fire Service will be attempting the 3 Peaks Challenge in full firefighting kit and wearing SCBA throughout, in order to raise funds for the Sick Kids Friends Foundation. This charity has 5 key aims that we hope to assist them in achieving:-

The provision of a wide variety of extra comforts which make time in hospital better for children

The provision of extra child and family friendly facilities

The purchase of extra medical equipment over and above NHS provision
 
The provision of extra support for sick children who are cared for in the community

Funding for extra training and research

The 3 Peaks Challenge consists of climbing the 3 highest mountains in the UK (Ben Nevis, Scaffel Pike and Snowdon) in under 24 hours, which is a challenge in itself. However, the fact that sick children and their families face much bigger challenges every day, we have opted to complete the entire challenge wearing full firefighting uniform and breathing apparatus, which will not come close to the daily challenge and pain of caring for a terminally ill sick child.

We would greatly appreciate if you would support us in our challenge, either by pledging goods or services to assist in the logistics of our challenge or, as we’d prefer, by pledging money to support the activities of the charity.

For further information, please go to http://www.edinburghafs.co.uk or email me at info@edinburghafs.co.uk

Thanks for looking in. Wink

My brother was/is a firefighter and now part of the search and Rescue team for Sussex full time based at Horsham.
 
I will pass on this to him and see if anyone from that regions stations can drum up some support for you.
 
Having seen and worn some of his gear I know what a challenge it will be.
