A TEAM of fundraising firefighters from Eastbourne are in the running for a top award.

The Blazing Saddles, all members of Green Watch at Eastbourne Fire Station in Whitley Road, have been shortlisted in this year’s Spirit of Fire Awards.

The group raised more than £15,000 for Clic Sargent, which looks after children with cancer, and the Firefighters’ Charity with a 1,000-mile charity scooter ride around the British Isles earlier this year.

They also held an Open Day at the fire station, a charity auction and celebrity football match.
