I have worked within Suffolk Fire & Rescue Service since 2013 in various roles, and rejoining the on-call service last year after 8 months working as a Crew Manager in Ascension Island (a dot in the middle of the South Atlantic).
I was initially part of the team in a support capacity. However, keen to cycle I am now in the team as a rider! With training slowly getting underway, I am keen to tick this ride off the bucket list and say I have done it.
With experience of long distance cycling in the past. Being part of a team of 100 cyclists from Bury St Edmunds rugby club in 2014 cycling home from Paris. I have been looking at finding a challenge since then with this always on the radar. To do this whilst raising awareness of mental health and raise funds for The Firefighters Charity ticks all the boxes for me.
A great opportunity to meet new people and gain exciting experiences along the way!
