Watch Manager Craig McFie has spoken about some of the volunteering work he does for the SFRS Family Support Trust

Craig Mc FieWatch Manager Craig McFie is a volunteer for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service’s Family Support Trust.

This is the oldest Fire and Rescue charity in the UK and works to raise funds for the benefit of Service personnel and retired members and their families.

Dad-of-two Craig is based at the Operations Support Centre in Johnstone and has worked for the Service for 21 years.

He is also captain of the 14th Paisley Company Boys’ Brigade.

He spoke of his role as the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service this week celebrates the outstanding work of all of its volunteers.

Each and every day they work to protect communities, raise vital charity funding and preserve the heritage of the world’s fourth largest emergency service.

We are launching this campaign as part of Volunteers Week, a celebration of notable people across the UK between June 1-7.

Craig, 40, said: “I am absolutely delighted to support Volunteers Week which turns a spotlight on all of those who work tirelessly to assist others in times of need.

“The Family Support Trust is a remarkable organisation because it can help those within the Service - and their families - when they reach out to ask for assistance.

“I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to my fellow Family Support Trust volunteers working across Scotland, to the staff and to the charity Trustees – and to all of those generous SFRS colleagues who have enabled us to continue to carry on our fantastic work.”
