Two public spirited youngsters are set to undertake a five mile walk to raise funds for the Firefighters Charity.
Five-year-old Charlie Walker and his brother C.J, aged six, will be donning their walking boots and wearing junior firefighters outfit when they set off on their charity walk on Sunday 14th July.
Charlie had the idea to raise funds for the Firefighters Charity after years of watching his heroes in action on television.
“When I am bigger I want to be a firefighter and spray the fires out.” said Charlie.
The young walkers, who are pupils at Our Lady and St Peter’s school, will start their route at Sewerby Hall and Gardens and make their way along the seafront and through Bridlington, finishing at the Fire Station based on Bessingby Road.
Proud mum Michelle Walker proudly spoke of the efforts of her children to raise funds.
“We have set up a JustGiving page and are aiming to raise £250 for The Firefighters Charity. Charlie has always wanted too be a fireman and when he grows up he said he wants to help the fire service.”
“We have been provided with collecting tins and stickers, so hope to raise some more cash on the way into town.”
Charlie’s brother C.J. was also looking forward to the walk: “I might be a fireman, but I think I want to be policeman because they have motorbikes.” he said.
The Firefighters Charity directly help support injured fire fighters across the UK. the charity helps those recovering from injury or illness or long-term conditions as well as mental health and well being.
