Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service Visit Alfretons Tesco Store

10/07/13

On Friday 12 July, firefighters, community safety officers and willing volunteers from Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service will be at the Tesco store in Alfreton, Derbyshire from 10am until 4pm. They will be on hand to talk to shoppers about fire safety, offering advice and information whilst at the same time packing customers shopping bags in exchange for donations for the Firefighters Charity.

Event organiser and Crew Manager Craig Shawcroft said: 'I am delighted that Tesco have agreed to let us come along and talk to their customers about the importance of fire safety and that they have agreed we can pack their customers shopping bags in exchange for donations towards the Firefighters Charity'

The Firefighters Charity is the UK's leading provider of services that enhance the quality of life for serving and retired firefighters, fire service personnel and their families. The charity aims to make a positive difference by supporting people in the fire and rescue community when they are in need. Over the years, they have helped hundreds of thousands of individuals by providing world-class treatment and support services.

Crew Manager Shawcroft, daunted by the prospect of packing bags at 24 checkouts on his own, called upon his fellow colleagues to offer their time, energy and enthusiasm to help him out at this event.

So if you would like to meet the team, learn more about fire safety and have the hassle of packing your shopping bags taken away from you for one day only, come along to Tesco in Alfreton on Friday between 10am and 4pm.
