Bristol Uniforms is helping The Fire Fighters Charity celebrate its 75th anniversary by promoting fundraising events on the reverse side of its managed services inspection cards.

A leading designer and manufacturer of protective clothing for emergency services across the globe, Bristol Uniforms provides comprehensive in-house managed services for its UK customers out of its two Service Centres in Staple Hill in Bristol, and Rainham in London. Together, the Centres wash, inspect and repair around 3,500 items of PPE every week, with each item returned to the customer with a signed inspection card to confirm that it is fit for operational service.

In support of The Fire Fighters Charity, Bristol will be printing its promotional messages on the reverse side of the cards to increase awareness of fundraising activities amongst the firefighting community.

The Fire Fighters Charity was formed during the Second World War in 1943 to support the bereaved families of firefighters who had died during the Blitz. Today, it offers a broad range of services from rehabilitation, health and wellbeing, nursing, recuperation, information and advice. To celebrate its 75th year, the Charity has launched the #My75Miles challenge, encouraging fundraisers to run, walk, cycle or swim 75 miles.

Roger Startin, Joint Managing Director of Bristol Uniforms comments:

“The Fire Fighters Charity is a well-established organisation with a long history of providing essential support to firefighters and their families. We hope our inspection cards will provide a great platform for promoting fundraising activities and raising awareness of their excellent services.”

Dr Jill Tolfrey, Chief Executive of The Fire Fighters Charity comments: “We’re grateful to Bristol Uniforms for promoting our fundraising activities on its inspection cards. We’re also keen for as many people as possible to take part in our #My75Miles challenge this year, so I am sure this will greatly help to encourage all those runners, walkers, swimmers and cyclists out there to give it a go.”

Andrew Lynch, Chair of The Fire Fighters Charity and Editor of Fire magazine, also added: “The continued support of companies like Bristol Uniforms is hugely important for The Fire Fighters Charity. Such mutually beneficial relationships help to create awareness of our services, of our fundraising activities and of the Charity in general throughout the fire community.”
