Fundraising event for this year’s London Marathon
On Saturday 18 September 2021, Corby Fire Station are hosting a car wash for the Fire Fighters Charity (FFC) to raise money and fundraise Firefighter Katy Newman running in this years London Marathon! Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) are proud to support Katy with her journey on running the London Marathon as well as raising funds for great cause. All funds raised will go towards The Fire Fighter’s Charity who will then cover the cost of Katy’s London Marathon place and all profits will go to the charity
The car wash will take place at Corby Fire Station, 20 Lloyds Road, Corby, NN17 1AP, starting at 10:00am until 16:00pm. As always, Corby have a fantastic turn out from the community, so we are hoping that September will be no different! Come down to show your support and to get your car cleaned by our lovely staff/volunteers.
The FFC asked Katy why she chose to run the marathon:
“To say things have been tough during this pandemic is an understatement. Along with the majority of the country, my own mental health has suffered during this challenging time and truthfully running has been my saviour. Pushing myself to run a marathon seemed like the next obvious step and I’m so proud to run for The Fire Fighter’s Charity where, in turn, I can play a part in supporting other people when they need it the most.”
Katy needs to raise a minimum of £2,000 and would appreciate any support to both her fundraising and car wash event – www.justgiving.com/fundraising/katy-newman2021
