Fundraising for Vicki

Birchwood firefighter Vicki Griffiths recently had a serious accident in the gym, which has so far left her unable to feel or move from the waist down.

This brings Vicki a new challenge, so firefighters, staff and volunteers have been fundraising to help with the cost of home and vehicle adaptations and other expenses to help her to live her life to the fullest.

So far we have raised £10,556. A fantastic amount!

Thank you to everyone who has donated #ForVicki.

It's estimated that it will cost around £45,000 for Vicki to have house and vehicle adaptations so she can live her life independently.
