Corsham firefighters take on three peaks in fire kit


Date: 16th September, 2019

A team from Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service will be climbing England’s three highest peaks this weekend – while wearing fire kit!

On Saturday (21 September), Corsham firefighters Tom Page, Paul Clifford, Chris Hughes, Mark Evans, Simon Chun, Luke Somerville and Andy Webster, together with former firefighter Lee Tregelles, will be taking on Scafell, Scafell Pike and Helvellyn.

That’s 12 miles and over 1,800m of ascent in one day to raise money for the Fire Fighters Charity and Dorothy House Hospice.

In recent years, the team from Corsham has raised over £10,000 for a range of charities, including the Fire Fighters Charity, Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Julia’s House Hospice, the Motor Neurone Disease Association and Meningitis UK.

Previous challenges – all in fire kit – have included a 22 mile walk along the Kennet & Avon Canal towpath, an ascent of Snowdon, a 26 mile walk along the Jurassic Coast and the 21 mile Five Valleys Walk, in and around Stroud.

Crew Manager Andy Webster said: “We have already been busy fund-raising locally, with a very successful concert and charity auction at the Town Hall on 13 September, a quiz, and a collection around the local pubs. We have been shown such generosity by members of the public and businesses, we are really grateful. This latest challenge is potentially the toughest yet but it’s for two great causes and we’ve been training hard!”
