YOUNGSTERS had the chance to soar 50ft into the air as part of the fun-filled activities on offer at Horwich Fire Station’s open day.

Families braved the hydraulic platform, which was operating rides, and watched firefighters demonstrate how they rescue car crash victims from damaged vehicles.

There was also a children’s fire engine, driving simulator, bouncy castle and a visit from Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service’s official mascot, Cracker the Labrador.

The fun day raised £370. This will be split between The Fire Fighters Charity and Lagan’s Foundation, which supports the parents of poorly children.

Glynn McGann, watch manager at Horwich Fire Station, said: “We would like to say a big thank you to Carrs Pasties — they were so helpful — and to the good townsfolk of Horwich for coming along. It was a fantastic day.”
