Devon Firefighters Run To London for Grenfell Colleagues

Six firefighters from Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service are taking on an epic 200 mile run to London.

The six firefighters are running from Exeter to North Kensington fire station on Friday 14th July, to raise money for colleagues in the London fire brigade.

Danny Slay, one of the firefighters taking part tells Heart they wanted to do something to support their colleagues who dealt with the Grenfell tower fire.


The group of six will set off at 9am, and run the 200 mile distance in 5 mile relays.

They'll all run the first 5 miles, and the last 5 miles, and on arrival will present Red Watch - the first to attend the Grenfell tower fire - with a plaque from Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service.
