Six Firefighters from across Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service will be climbing Mount Toubkal in September to raise much needed funds for a charity close to their hearts.
Located in the Atlas Mountains, Mount Toubkal is the highest peak in North Africa; standing at 4,167m tall. The girls (Station Manager Charlotte Weatherall-Smith from Gedling, Firefighter Lauree Fearon-Hunt from Woodborough, Firefighter Dannielle Bailey from Leicester, Firefighter Mary Amos from Killamarsh, Firefighter Nicola Hawes from Woodthorpe and Firefighter Kit Swales from Radcliffe-On-Trent) are hoping to complete the challenge by starting in Nottingham, reach the mountain peak and then return to Nottingham in only 4 days!
The group have been training regularly in fire station gyms and by hiking locally and are hoping to raise £10,000 in aid of the Fire Fighters Charity.
The Fire Fighters Charity exists to help all serving and retired members of the UK’s fire family to live healthier and happier. To find out more, visit the website at www.firefighterscharity.org.uk.
So far, they have raised over £8,000 with £248.85 being raised at a collection held in the city centre on 18th June 2022.
