Student shows support

A local student has been awarded a certificate for his fundraising support. Ten-year-old Sam Henderson from Much Wenlock Primary School raised more than £500 for the Firefighter’s Charity. He had been inspired by his teaching assistant Stephanie Tench, who is also a retained firefighter.

Sam was awarded the certificate by chief fire officer Rod Hammerton at the annual passing out parade in Shrewsbury. The event, held at Theatre Severn in November, saw more than 200 people turn up to watch the newly trained firefighters pass out to join the Shropshire rescue team.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue are always looking out for retained on-call firefighters who would be available for a set number of hours per week to answer 999 calls. Full training is provided. If you are interested, visit on-callfire.co.uk.
