College staff thanked for their fundraising efforts

in News

Group Commander Rob Ball from Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said: “The Personnel team at the college fundraise for a different charity each year, and in 2012, chose to support The Fire Fighters Charity, an organisation that offers support to serving and retired firefighters and Fire Service staff.

“As part of their fundraising, they organised a book sale, a Christmas raffle and a ‘Naff’ lucky dip with a variety of good and not so good prizes! They also held an online auction, set up by a member of staff, with donations of goods and services from college staff, their friends and family, as well as from local and national businesses.”

College staff recently visited the fire station where they presented the proceeds of their fundraising to Group Commander Ball and Blue Watch, Hereford.

GC Ball added: “The amount they raised was absolutely fantastic, and on behalf of the charity, I’d like to thank them for such an amazing effort.”
