Welshpool Firefighter, Chris Birdsell-Jones wins Supporter of the Year

WELSHPOOL Firefighter, Chris Birdsell-Jones wins Supporter of the Year at the prestigious Spirit of Fire Awards, held virtually by The Fire Fighters Charity.

Chris Birdsell-Jones, the brains behind The Fire Tones, was the driving force in organising Firefighters from across the UK, to perform a version of the classic Band Aid hit Do They Know It’s Christmas in 2018, raising thousands of pounds for the Fire Fighters Charity.

For the first time ever, due to the current pandemic, the Fire Fighters Charity held their annual award ceremony virtually, enabling everyone to tune in online to watch and support all those nominated.  Viewers got to watch a host of well know celebrities announce the winners of each category, with former footballer Les Ferdinand MBE, announcing our very own Chris as Supporter of the Year!
