Toby Carvery Marches into Charity Partnership with The Royal British Legion

Toby Carvery is delighted to announce its charity partnership with The Royal British Legion, which it will be supporting with fundraising initiatives over the next two years.

Toby Carvery’s across Lichfield & Birmingham will be taking part in the fundraising initiative, adding a special charity pudding to their menus with 25p from each pudding sale being donated to The Legion. The jam and coconut sponge was voted for by Toby Carvery’s fans on Facebook to be the official charity pudding and received over 500 entries.  

Toby Carvery aims to raise £100,000 for The Royal British Legion by the end of 2018, and is encouraging locals to tuck into a pudding and get involved in local fundraising activities to help support this great cause.

The money raised will be used to support active, and veteran members of the Armed Forces and their families, remembering those fallen in the line of duty and ensuring their memory lives on, and that those left behind are fully supported within their community.

As well as fundraising initiatives, Toby Carvery is giving back to Armed Forces and their families by partnering with the Defences Discount Card which gives Armed Forces members, spouses and veterans 10% off their food bill.  As the official discount service for the Armed Forces, the Defence Community and Veterans, the card is also available to members of the community not previously supported, including spouses and partners of serving personnel.

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service - Recruitment of Wholetime Firefighters starts June 1st

Recruitment for wholetime firefighters starts on June 1, 2017.
Keep an eye on our social media and website for recruitment updates, coming soon! As of June 1, applications can be submitted via the Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service page of the www.wmjobs.co.uk(opens in a new window) website. We welcome applications from all parts of our community.
The Role
There is much more to the role of firefighter than the common perception of riding in a fire appliance and extinguishing house fires. We strongly believe that prevention is better than cure and our firefighters are expected to take a significant role in community safety and education as part of their day-to-day duties.
To apply you must be 18 years old or over and hold a full driving license. We welcome applications from outside of Staffordshire and transfers from other fire and rescue services.
Here is a summary of some of the day-to-day duties of a wholetime firefighter:
  • Inform and educate your community to improve awareness of safety matters
  • Save and preserve endangered life and provide treatment to casualties
  • Contribute to the fire safety solutions to minimise risks to the community
  • Resolve operational incidents
  • Protect the environment from the effects of hazardous materials
  • Drive, manoeuvre and de-ploy vehicles
