Nominating section: Gloucestershire

Policy text:

Conference recognises the outstanding contribution to good causes made by the Firefighters 100 Lottery and applauds every supporter who has participated. In the first 12 months after its launch the Firefighters 100 Lottery raised more than £120,000 for good causes and gave significant support to injured FBU Members as well as giving vital funding to ensure that firefighters who have fallen in the line of duty are properly commemorated and remembered.

Conference fully supports the Firefighters 100 Lottery and calls on all Members to assist in building the number of supporters who sign up to it. Conference believes that the Firefighters 100 Lottery should be a feature of as many FBU activities as possible and calls for an ongoing campaign to ensure that the lottery and its contributions to good causes be well publicised across all FBU communication platforms.

Conference calls upon the Executive Council to ensure the materials which outline the work of the lottery and encourage participation are made available to Officials and distributed at meetings and workplaces. Conference also calls for regular features on the positive work of the lottery to be published in ‘Firefighter’ and for the lottery to be a feature of FBU stands at the TUC and Labour Party Conferences.

Conference calls on all Members and Officials to be ambitious for the Firefighters 100 Lottery and work to enhance its supporter base and therefore its ability to help commemorate the bravery and sacrifice of firefighters killed and injured in the line of duty.
