An open day to raise vital funds for The Fire Fighters’ Charity will be held at Wellingborough Fire Station next month.
The event will include an array of attractions such as emergency service vehicles to explore, a smoke house maze, display drills by Emergency Services Cadets, and a fire crew carrying out a staged animal rescue.
Entertainments will also include traditional games such as ‘hook a duck’, kids’ activities such as a bouncy castle, face painting, a miniature fire engine and stalls selling everything from books to sweets.
The open day will be held on Saturday 8 September from 1pm until 4pm. Entry is £1 per adult, but a free raffle ticket comes with this cost. Kids enter free.
For local community
Firefighter Ronnie Sherratt, one of the organisers, said: “We are really excited to be hosting this day for the local community.
“The Fire Fighters’ Charity, which works to help support injured firefighters and their families, is a cause close to our hearts and we hope the day will raise plenty of funds for this worthy organisation.
“We really have taken a great deal of care in planning the event, to make sure there are lots of activities for visitors of all ages to enjoy. We hope it draws the crowds.”
