Firefighters from Leeds sizzled on stage to raise thousands of pounds for local causes.
A special performance by firefighters from the Red Hot Dates charity calendar entertained hundreds of screaming fans at the Flaming Charity’s Variety Show.
The sold-out show at Batley Frontier last month raised a staggering £10,000 for the cause.
Over the past 19 years, the Flaming Charity has raised more than £150,000 for The Fire Fighters Charity, which provides help and support to wounded firefighters and their families.
Other performers included compere Simon Young, tribute band Gimme Abba, pop group Sour Cherry, soul singer Lucie Jay and the Katie Philpott School of Dance.
The first variety show for the charity was set up by fire officer Frank Gledhill in 1993 at Leeds City Varieties.
Gipton firefighter Stuart Wilson helped organise the show and is treasurer of the Flaming Charity.
He said: “There were 600 people at the show this year, which is just incredible and it was a tremendous success.
“We have also helped raise money for other charities such as the Laila Milly Foundation and the Howland Centre.”
The stars of the show may have just stepped off the stage but plans for next year’s event are already under way.
Mr Wilson added: “It will be extra special next year as it is the show’s 20th anniversary.”
West Yorkshire’s Fire and Rescue Service received a Spirit of Fire Award last year for all of its charity work.
The teams were recognised in the Fire Fighters Charity’s Fundraising Brigade of the Year category.
