At Fire and Safety Solutions (FASS) we always like to go above and beyond where we can. Whether that’s an exceptional quality installation or friendly advice on the correct fire safety products, doing our best runs through everything we do.
However, we are extremely proud and impressed at the commitment of two of our staff members, Sarah and Charlotte, to do all that they can to raise funds for our nominated charity, The Lisa Kent Trust (http://www.lisakenttrust.org/) by quite literally going above and beyond and throwing themselves off a mountain!
On Saturday 1st June 2019, Sarah and Charlotte will be making the long trek to the top of Babadag Mountain (1,969 m) near Oludeniz in Turkey. Braving the crazy road up, bracing winds, and shear drop; the girls will hurl themselves off the top to take the 40 min descent and hopefully arrive safely into the arms of their esteemed Employers (that’s us, by the way!) on Oludeniz Beach (with a Gin and T in our hands).
FASS have been closely associated with The Lisa Kent Trust for the last 5 years and currently assist 4 children through their education. We would love to be able to raise adequate funds to provide the school in The Gambia with fitted Solar Panels, a project they have been considering for some time, but yet to complete.
To hear a little more about our fund raising directly from Sarah and Charlotte, please take a moment to listen to the audio clip below, taken from a recent interview with the girls on Huntingdon Community Radio.

Like all businesses, Fire and Safety Solutions are often focused on promoting our services, carrying out work for clients and in the every day life of business in the UK, it is very easy to loose sight of how fortunate we are. Sometimes it is not until you read the plight of others that you stop to reflect upon this and think about what you can do to help others. One of the easiest ways to give a little back to those less fortunate is though charity donations and FASS have long supported a number of charity and community projects which you can see here.
One such charity is the Lisa Kent Trust, a UK registered charity dedicated to providing the children of the Gambia with the education they need for a brighter future. The Trust has been working to deliver a quality education to children & young people in deprived communities of The Gambia since 2001.
FASS have directly sponsored number of children in The Gambia, to help them receive the education that in the UK we take for-granted and to help give the children an opportunity of a better future.
We are always pleased to hear the children are doing well and are delighted to share with you the school reports we have recently received:
At FASS we would be grateful if you have the time to visit the LisaKentTrust website and read about the excellent work they do. Perhaps too, you would also like to sponsor a child to help them get a better start in life through education – details are available on the LisaKentTrust website, or a small donation to the charity to help with the building of schools – thank you.
Fire and Safety Solutions (FASS) are pleased to have become one of the sponsors of Beford Town FC with the installation of a new pitch side banner to promote our fire and safety services. The large and colourful banner can be seen just near the goal and we are very pleased to be able to support a local club.
Speaking on the sponsorship, Paul Wilkinson, Managing Director of FASS said; “As well as being a great opportunity for us at FASS to promote our services, it’s always important to us to support local clubs where we can. We are really pleased to be able to have our banner in such a prominent position at the edge of the pitch and hope that it will also help to remind people of the importance of being fire safety aware. Afterall, the only thing anyone wants to see on fire at Bedford FC is the football skills! We wish the club the very best for the rest of the season.
