Eleven year old, Alexander Wilson competed in the Big Fun Run, Sheffield on Saturday 10 August and raised £374 for The Fire Fighters Charity.
The role of a firefighter has changed over recent years. They do more than put out fires and cut people out of cars, they:
- Influence young people
- Act as role models
It’s these skills that have influenced Alexander Wilson to want to become a firefighter.
Starting secondary school this autumn, Alexander dedicated his spare time to raise £375 for The Fire Fighters Charity by competing in the Big Fun Run in Sheffield.
His family are so supportive of his efforts as they walked alongside cheering him on.
Melissa Wilson, Alexander’s mum said:
“I am so proud of my son and what he has achieved”
We would like to say a big thank you to Alexander and his family for the dedication they have shown towards our Fire Service.
We love to hear positive and uplifting stories from our community!
