The Fire Fighters Charity

3 April 2011

Here at the Fire Fighters Charity, we’re all eagerly counting down to Martha and the crew successfully completing their world circumnavigation on Sunday, 10 April at 1pm at the Grand Square and Colonnades, Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich.

I’m quite new at the Fire Fighters Charity, having joined as PR Manager just a couple of weeks ago, but as a former member of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service I have ‘followed that fire engine’ since the expedition got underway last July. What a trip!

We’ve enjoyed every step of the journey as Steve Moore has lead Martha and the crew an impressive 26,000 miles through 28 countries. In particular, the highs and the lows have kept us all entertained over the past 9 months; the silliness of shipping, the amazing cities, the GPS blips, and especially the quotes of the day!  Our sincere thanks go to you all for your epic achievement and we’re both proud and touched to be one of the team’s chosen charities.

The Fire Fighters Charity is there for fire fighters during their times of need, and assists over 13,500 individuals every year by providing pioneering treatment and support services. Without the support of our fantastic fundraisers and the amazing lengths they go to, this simply wouldn’t be possible.

So, as Martha and the team approach the culmination of their incredible journey (congratulations btw on having been recognised by the Guinness World Record as an official world record attempt at the longest continuous trip in a fire engine), all the team here at the Fire Fighters Charity is urging our supporters to join us in welcoming Martha back to Greenwich and Longitude Zero (0° 0’ 0”)!

Very best wishes,
