AN INTREPID team of fire fighters based at Birmingham International Airport recently completed a gruelling trek for Cancer Research UK.
The group decided to walk the 25-mile route because several colleagues and former colleagues have been affected by the disease.
Starting at Bakewell in the Peak District, the 12-strong team crossed the rugged terrain last Wednesday.
They had collected an impressive £1,250 before they even began and now they’ve completed the trek, the group are hoping to raise an extra £2,000.
Richard Meanley, who organised the trek said: “This is a terrible disease which seems to have an affect on most people’s lives and in this way, we might just help to make a difference.”
