The fundraising campaign, Operation Florian, has been championed by four local fire-fighters who intend to raise enough funds to buy and deliver four fully-kitted fire engines to the areas of Sveti Nikole and Veles in Macedonia in early May 2008.

When they have reached their target of £5,000 they will drive across Europe to deliver the engines and training.
