Supporting the Fire and Rescue Service Family

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service Family Support Trust (established 1923), is the oldest Fire & Rescue charity in the UK.  We enjoy a unique position as the only Fire Service charity, run within a specific Fire and Rescue Service, for the benefit of Service personnel and retired members and their families.

Over the years, our Charity has successfully aligned itself to the changing face of the Fire & Rescue Services.  Formerly known as Strathclyde Widows and Orphans Fund, we changed name to SFRS Family Support Trust and adopted SCIO status, following the reform of Scotland’s Fire and Rescue Services in April 2013.

T-shirt success

T shirt Success !

Trustees would like to say a massive thank you to WM Willie Armstrong and Siobhan Hynes for their superb ongoing fundraising support, on behalf of SFRS Family Support Trust.

Willie and Siobhan recently presented a cheque for £2,500 to Vice Chairperson Iain Morris – the funds that were raised from Willie’s t-shirt initiative, launched in autumn 2015, where limited edition t-shirts with fun slogans ‘World’s Okayest Fire Fighter’ and ‘Let it Roll’ were sold.

Willie said   “We are really pleased with the success of this initiative and demand for T shirts has exceeded our expectations, they have been going like hot cakes. The support and enthusiasm from SFRS personnel has also been fantastic”.

Iain said   “We would like to acknowledge and sincerely thank Willie and Siobhan for their tremendous efforts and ongoing support. Willie’s generosity has given our Service Charity a huge boost in both funds and profile.  Last year we were absolutely delighted to receive the fabulous donation from the Red Hot Chilli Pipers benefit concert. Once again this T-shirt initiative has been personally sponsored by Willie, with 100% of proceeds to FST. We are very grateful to Willie for his incredible generosity and commitment and we look forward to seeing another one of his great ideas reach musical fruition later this year”
