Nurses dress as firefighters to raise money for charity

  • Comment

A group of nurses and firefighters will swap uniforms and take part in a bed push to raise money for charity.

This weekend, nurses from Greenwich & Bexley Cottage Hospice in Abbey Wood, along with firefighters from Woolwich Fire Station, will take to the streets in a charity bed push to raise funds for Greenwich & Bexley Cottage Hospice.

Firefighters dressed as nurses and nurses dressed as firefighters will push a bed through the streets of Greenwich and Bexley as part of their fundraising efforts.

Community fundraiser, Julie Lawrie-Raison, said: “We thought of doing something a little bit different this year, something with a twist. We wanted to catch people’s eye and cheer them up. Our bed push promises to be a fun day, bringing together the local people, Woolwich Fire Brigade and the Hospice to help raise vital funds. We appreciate the support of local people regardless of how much they can afford to give, whether it is 10p or £10.”
