I was very privileged to go up to Dunrobin Castle this morning to accept this cheque for £2500 from Shona at Sutherland Estates. Earlier this year there was a significant wildfire on the estate which crews from all over the North SDA attended. The Estate wished to thank the crews for all their hard work over the five week period it took to finally fully extinguish the blaze. Being the selfless individuals they are, the crews asked for the thanks to be directed towards fire s…ervice charities rather than accept it themselves.
On behalf of our charities, I would like to thank Lord Strathnaver and all at Sutherland Estates for their very generous donation. I would also like to thank each and every crew member from all of the stations who attended, firstly for their exemplary work which generated this donation and secondly for asking that others less fortunate than themselves benefit.
You are all amazing
