And never has the gratitude been so high as over the last year during these most challenging of times.

They have been unflinching in their resolve to provide support to those who need it at their time of need.

And today we applaud Leeds Fire Station firefighter Hassan Abrar and his friend Azam Ahmed Khan for their mammoth challenge of running 10k a day for 30 days during Ramadan.

This challenge is tough at the best of times but they will be undertaking this while they are not eating or drinking anything, including water, for 18 hours a day.

And their noble effort will help to raise funds for charity The Akhirah Team, based in Harehills.

The duo have set themselves a target of raising £5,000 to support the charity’s humanitarian work.

And we wish them all the very best of luck on their challenge to help transform the lives of others.
