Around 340 schoolchildren from across Merseyside were put through their paces at the 2014 Fire Fit Active Challenge organised by our Service.
The World Cup Brazil-themed event saw pupils from 11 Merseyside schools competing in a range of sports such as netball, rugby, football and volleyball at the Toxteth Fire Fit Hub.
Our Service staff delivered the event and firefighters from Toxteth and Kirkby community fire stations also
gave their support, along with young volunteers from Prince’s Trust Toxteth Team 20.
All the children were given special yellow and green Fire Fit t-shirts, to fit in with the colours of the Brazil flag, and were awarded a Brazil-themed certificate at the end of the tournament.
As well as promoting sport, the event also encouraged healthy eating with a variety of nutritious food from across the world on offer for children to sample.
