PBCC - Stow Cheque Hand OverA sponsored walk by the Stow congregation of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church has been generously and strongly supported by businesses and the local community, raising a fantastic £1693.70 for the Stow Fire Station.

Church member said “We were very pleased by the many donations received. It is quite clear that the service provided by the brave personnel from Stow Fire Station is very much appreciated by the locals here and this was a great opportunity to voice all of our thanks. They do an excellent job and we can all feel safer in the knowledge of this.”

The sponsored walk was over 6.25 miles from Bourton on the Water to Stow on the Wold via the Slaughters including all age groups.

    Brilliant! Cannot underestimate the work our firemen do – and not just in fighting fires! Their first aid and rescue equipment is awesomely expensive but can make the difference between life & death. Three cheers for the families and kids that made the effort and to the caring local community for all their support!!

      And I believe the amazing PBCC in Stow were busy helping out in all sorts of ways during the snowy weather recently. Can we see some pictures, by any chance?
      It inspires all the other teams!! No-one knows what is round the next corner. I think it is wonderful to have co-ordinated efforts these days – remember what TEAM stands for – Together Everyone Achieves More!!
