4 year old Dwight has been diagnosed with a rare childhood cancer, Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma. As Dwight is much more of a super hero than us firies, we are taking part in shaving our heads in order to raise funds to help support him and his family with medical, travel and living expenses.
Now some of us firies are a little ‘precious’, so we won’t be shaving our heads for a couple of dollars (but every dollar of every donation counts). Please help us raise some major funds to support this family. After all – could you imagine having to run between PMH and Sir Charles Gardener hospital with your 4 year old child almost daily for the next year, whilst also having a younger child at home, and the stress of work to get by?
When a child is fighting cancer, they need to know they’re not alone… They need to know they have a team fighting with them and for them. Well Dwight – you have a whole fire brigade fighting for you.
The big shave will be taking place at our Annual Dinner on the 21st May. We will make sure we get plenty of photos and videos to keep you all updated.
Don’t worry boys – we will have some beanies to keep your heads warm over winter.

We will also take cash donations at the station.
