Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service Raising Money For Dronfield Firefighter

Stefan Hawcroft, a 29 year old On-Call Firefighter from Dronfield has recently been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour and has been given just four weeks to live.  A private clinic based in Germany can provide Stefan with treatment and his family and friends have set up a GoFundMe page to try and raise enough funds to get Stefan the treatment he needs.

In order to help out with the fundraising, stations from across the county will be hosting charity car washes this weekend (24-25 March 2018).  All proceeds will go to support Stefan and the cost of his pioneering treatment in Germany so make sure you come along and show your support and drive away in a sparkling clean motor!

You can donate via the GoFundMe page that has been set up here: www.gofundme.com/stefan-hawcroft-the-bravest-man
