Fire­fight­ers 21-mile walk for menin­gi­tis

Bath Chronicle - - NEWS -

A group of fire­fight­ers are train­ing for their fourth char­ity fundraiser a 21-mile spon­sored walk. Crew from Cor­sham have taken on var­i­ous walks since 2013 all while wear­ing full kit for dif­fer­ent causes. This month they will take on The Five Val­leys Walk in and around Stroud on Septem­ber 30 in aid of Menin­gi­tis Now. Crew man­ager Andy Web­ster has been in­volved in all four chal­lenges and this time will be joined by crew man­ager Chris Hughes, fire­fight­ers Luke Somerville, Si­mon Chun, David Lucas, Paul Clif­ford and Odie Healey, and for­mer Cor­sham fire­fighter Lee Tregelles. He said: “The Five Val­leys Walk is a fundraiser for Menin­gi­tis Now, sup­port­ing the de­vel­op­ment and in­tro­duc­tion of five life­sav­ing vac­cines against forms of menin­gi­tis and meningo­coc­cal dis­ease. We’re also sup­port­ing the Fire Fight­ers Char­ity again, as it pro­vides such es­sen­tial ser­vices to the whole fire and res­cue ser­vice com­mu­nity.” As with pre­vi­ous chal­lenges, the team will be wear­ing tu­nics, leg­gings and hel­mets, while car­ry­ing breath­ing ap­pa­ra­tus sets on their backs.
