Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue will be taking on the famous ‘Three Peaks Challenge’ later this month, in aid of the Fire Fighters Charity.

The team of six will be joining firefighters across the country on June 21, swapping their uniforms for survival gear to tackle the tallest peaks in the country – Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in the Lake District and Snowdon in Wales.

Kevin Glover, a Louth firefighter, said: “This is a brilliant opportunity for us to show our support for The Fire Fighters Charity, who help firefighters and their families by providing physical rehabilitation, recuperation and emotional support.

“This will be the 43rd Fire Service Three Peaks Challenge – which does have a competitive side to it. It won’t be easy but we will be trying to walk 20 miles and climb over 10,000 feet in just 20 hours.

“Any donation you can make will be greatly appreciated, and you can do this at www.justgiving.com/louth3peaks/. You are also welcome to pop into our station on Victoria Road anytime.”

You can also text the amount you would like to donate to 70070, giving the team’s code, LFRS91.
