The prime objective and intention of The Worshipful Company of Firefighters is to promote the development and advancement of the science, art and the practice of firefighting, fire prevention and life safety. It also encourages good professional behaviour and an exchange of information between Members of the Company and others who work in allied fields.

The Company has undertaken to maintain the traditions and customs of the City of London and to pledge support to the Lord Mayor and Aldermen in all matters relevant to the life and dignity of the City.


Friends, Liverymen, Freemen of the Worshipful Company of Firefighters, I am in need your urgent assistance! I have been invited to coffee with the Lord Mayor, Alderman Alan Yarrow and the Lady Mayoress, along with several other Master’s – the reason for this invite is that I shall be “arrested” by the City of London Police on a trumped up charge and then incarcerated in the Tower of London until my Bail, which has been set at £1000 is paid, all in aid of the British Red Cross. I shall have to exist on bread and water for the day (okay so it IS the sparkling type provided by Pol Roger …. But!!!!)

So I implore you to take pity on me and donate using the following link

or by cheque to the Clerk’s office, so that I can continue to be the Company’s Master and Ambassador until July. If you donate via the link, and are a UK taxpayer then the Red Cross will receive 25% extra through Gift Aid with no cost to yourself, the Red Cross will receive the payments quicker and is of course more efficient way of sponsorship. Your sincerely, signed by an “innocent man” who is in desperate straits.
Bryan Spearman,
