Three firefighters have successfully completed a charity walk to every fire station in the county.
Oswaldtwistle man Phil Whittaker and colleagues Neil Mark and Wes Truran raised £6,000 in the 175-mile walk to Lancashire’s 39 stations.
The trek took five days and was to raise money for the Firefighters Charity.
The charity helped Phil, 47, and wife Lyndsey after the loss of one of their children.
Phil, of Barnard Close, said the charity, founded during World War 2, still served an important role in helping firefighters injured in the line of duty.
He added: “Ten years ago we lost one of our triplets, Joshua, when he was just 10 months old and we went down to their recuperation centre in Devon for respite, which is what we needed.
“The medical staff at their centre in Penrith are fantastic.”
Phil said many firefighters came in to see them when they visited their stations.
He added: “They gave us donations and refreshments, which was great. It was quite heartwarming to see how the service had taken it to heart.”
