Richmondshire firefighters to climb the equivalent of Munt Everest for charity

Richmondshire firefighters will take part in a charity ladder climb next week.

The event will take place in Richmond Market Place on Saturday, September 24 from 10am.

Richmond and other local fire fighters, along with Richmond Fire Cadets, will raise funds for The Fire Fighters Charity, Yorkshire Air Ambulance and other local charities by climbing the equivalent of Mount Everest — a height of 8,849 metres in a day.

Jon Hancock, from Richmond Fire Station, said: “Please come along to show your support and help cheer us on as we take on this huge challenge.

“Collections will be available on the day, however if you can’t make it and still would like to donate then please give what you can via this Go Fund Me page.”
