Firefighters and fundraisers

The Dargaville Volunteer Fire Brigade was formed on August 8, 1913 and they have served the community with saving lives, houses, and forests to name a few of the tasks they have undertaken. But the brigade has always helped the community in other areas as much as they can.

As well as seven members training and fundraising for the Sky Tower stair way challenge, the brigade is joining the Dargaville ‘Pork Pie Charity Run’ group in donating their time and resources to fundraise for Kidscan next month.

On Friday, April 7, the brigade will host a quiz night, organised by the Pork Pie group at their Dargaville station.

Fire personnel will man the bar, provide finger food and help out where needed on the night. “Graeme Powdrell from Kidscan approached us about needing a facility to host the event to raise money and we said not a problem,” said firefighter Jason Campbell. 

“We do what we can to support the community, or we wouldn’t be firefighters. It’s just another form of supporting the community and an organisation that needs help.”
