Recruits raise £1,400 for charity with 13 mile run

NEW GMFRS recruits have raised more than £1,400 by organising a strenuous 13 mile run.


The new trainee firefighters organised the half marathon in aid of The Fire Fighters charity.


Stopping at Philips Park, Salford, Agecroft and Broughton fire stations for refreshments, it took nearly 3 hours for all 27 recruits to finish.



Corporate Trainer, Gary Shanks said: “It’s a tradition for new recruit courses to organise a charity event but this team really put the effort in.


“A lot of time and dedication went into the planning. It’s a hard event and they could have chosen something a lot easier going, so we were very impressed at the effort they put in.”
