Attendance at Darwen 999 Day

Today, at the invitation of the organisers of Darwen 999 day taking place on Darwen Market Square one Support Group member attended this event with our Mountain Rescue Vehicle BM3 on display. Many other team members and vehicles were still committed to assisting the Fire and Rescue services at the ongoing fire on Winter Hill so special thanks to Iain Clarkson from our support group for attending this event on our behalf.

Other displays on the day included Rosemere Cancer Foundation, Blood bikes, Fire cadets, Lancashire Ambulance service, Poppy appeal and Lancashire police.

We had many members of the general public asking questions on what we do and how the fire was on Winter hill.

The team was very grateful for the interest shown in our work and by all who visited us and thankful for the fantastic donations totalling £94.29.
