Tenbury firefighter Oliver recognised for his fund-raising prowess

A TENBURY Wells firefighter has been recognised as Hereford and Worcester Fire Service’s individual supporter and fund-raiser of the year.

Oliver Prouse, who organised and then ran the Tenbury Santa Run last December, has been handed the title by the Fire Fighters Charity.

He donated £1,000 from the event to the charity.

Tenbury Fire Station was named as runner-up in the HWFRS station/department fund-raiser of the year section for the charity after crew took part in the race by running in fire kit and breathing apparatus to raise £771.

The awards were presented by Chief Fire Officer Nathan Travis who also acknowledged the special contribution made to the service by two other Tenbury firefighters for their dedicated service for more than 20 years.

Watch Commander Ian Bowkett and Crew Commander Jonathan Pearson were handed Long Service and Good Conduct medals in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the Service and to their community.

At the ceremony, CFO Travis said: “During these unprecedented times, it is great to recognise the work that Tenbury firefighters have done to support both for their community and the Fire Fighters Charity.”
