Foster families from across the town visited Slough Fire Station as part of Foster Care Fortnight.
On Saturday, May 28, children and young people aged between one and 17 visited firefighters at the station in Tuns Lane.
They were given a full tour of the station, given the chance to sit in a fire engine and saw how the crew work together to save lives.
The event was organised by Slough Children’s Services Trust, the independent organisation which is responsible for fostering in the borough.
Foster Care Fortnight, which was held between May 16 and 24, is a nationwide campaign and is the UK’s biggest foster carer recruitment drive.
Delivered by the charity The Fostering Network, the aim of the annual event is to also showcase the commitment, dedication and passion of foster carers.
