The busy day saw a variety of activities that local residents could get involved with including: the driving simulator, an RTC demonstration, hydraulic platform rides, a bouncy castle and much more. A fantastic £1,320 was raised for the Fire Fighters Charity.


A cycle and road safety theme featured throughout the day, Greater Manchester’s Cycling and Walking Commissioner Chris Boardman attended the event promoting the benefits of walking and cycling in Greater Manchester.

Awareness was also raised of the Blazing Saddles charity bike ride taking place in July. Oldham firefighters will be cycling a remarkable 1,600 miles from Oldham to Gibraltar in two weeks to raise money for four amazing charities.
