A team of Louth firefighters will be taking on the famous ‘Three Peaks Challenge’ later this month, in aid of the Fire Fighters Charity.
The team of six will be joining firefighters across the country on June 21, swapping their uniforms for survival gear to tackle the tallest peaks in the country – Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in the Lake District, and Snowdon in Wales.
It won’t be easy, but we will be trying to walk 20 miles and climb over 10,000 feet in just 20 hours.Kevin Glover
The team consists of Louth firefighters Kevin Glover, Jordan Papworth, Dan Hall and Andy Wand, plus Grant Newman from Crowland.
Callum Coomes, from Market Deeping Fire Station, will be the group’s driver.
Kevin Glover said: “This is a brilliant opportunity for us to show our support for The Fire Fighters Charity, who help firefighters and their families by providing physical rehabilitation, recuperation and emotional support.
“This will be the 43rd Fire Service Three Peaks Challenge, which does have a competitive side to it.
“It won’t be easy but we will be trying to walk 20 miles and climb over 10,000 feet in just 20 hours.
“Any donation you can make will be greatly appreciated, and you can do this at www.justgiving.com/ louth3peaks.
“You are also welcome to pop into our station on Victoria Road anytime.”
Kevin added: “The Fire Fighters Charity helps with the recuperation and rehabilitation for both serving and retired firefighters and their families”.
You can also text the amount you would like to donate to 70070, giving the team’s code, LFRS91.
