HEYWOOD Firefighter Pete Griffiths has won an award for his outstanding charity efforts for humanitarian aid charity, Operation Florian.

The Beyond the Call of Duty Award is a joint Ballyclare Ltd and Fire Magazine award.

Pete was nominated for the award by Lesley Wardle, a volunteer fundraiser with Operation Florian, for his commitment over the years.

Presenting the award on behalf of Ballyclare Ltd, Pete Dawson, Business Development Director said: “Pete is a great supporter of Operation Florian.  He always tries to assist with fundraising wherever he can, and will go out of his way to help and make a difference for the charity.

“Aside from Pete’s other fundraising efforts for Operation Florian, this year he ran the New York marathon for the third time.  He will always stand in at short notice to help with any fundraising event for the charity.

“Pete’s dedication goes well beyond the call of duty and helps to make a big difference to less fortunate communities around the world.”
