Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service has raised more than £6,000 for three different charities following the bonfire and firework display at the service’s training centre last week.

The annual display was well attended and the service’s employees who work at the training centre decided to split the record profits between three charities; The Fire Fighters Charity will be donated £3,000, The Legacy Rainbow House will receive £1,500 and the North West Air Ambulance will get £1,500.

The Fire Fighters Charity provides a range of services that enhance quality of life for injured serving and retired fire service personnel and their families.

The Legacy Rainbow House specialises in providing services for children with brain injuries, disabilities and life limiting conditions.

The North West Air Ambulance provides three helicopters for the region everyday of the year with doctors and paramedics on board.

A Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “Thank you to everyone who attended and those who helped to make this year’s event one of the biggest and best displays.”
