Firey happy to help PMH

Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

USED to wearing his uni­form to fight fires, An­drew Strunk has donned it for an­other cause, al­beit mi­nus a piece or two.

The Fre­man­tle fire­fighter was se­lected to be ‘Mr April’ in the 2018 Perth Fire­fight­ers Cal­en­dar, an an­nual fundraiser for chil­dren in Princess Mar­garet Hos­pi­tal’s burns unit.

Mr Strunk said he was hum­bled by the op­por­tu­nity to take part in the pop­u­lar Perth Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion fundraiser, es­pe­cially af­ter wit­ness­ing the im­por­tant work done help­ing sick and in­jured chil­dren.

“While com­plet­ing a shift with the Ra­dio Lol­lipop pro­gram at PMH last year a fam­ily mem­ber ac­tu­ally came through the front doors and I got to see first-hand the im­pact of bet­ter med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties for chil­dren in their hour of great­est need,” he said.

“It's a fan­tas­tic cause and I'm re­ally happy to see the brigade and many of my close mates giv­ing their sup­port for this very mean­ing­ful and fun fundraiser.”

The cal­en­dars are $15 and are avail­able from
