Firefighters raising bike ride cash at Moor event

Firefighters will be meeting shoppers on The Moor, Sheffield on Saturday (10 September), in a bid to raise charity cash ahead of a major fundraising bike ride.

South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue firefighters are cycling between Lands End and John O’Groats later this month to raise money for the Fire Fighters Charity.

At Saturday’s event the team will be riding on exercise bikes and collecting donations to raise awareness of their mammoth challenge, as well as passing on fire safety tips to the people they meet.

The cyclists begin their 600 mile ride on 19 September.

The Fire Fighters Charity is the UK’s leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired firefighters, fire personnel and their families.
