THIRTEEN West Yorkshire firefighters are aiming to take part in the World Firefighters Games in Hong Kong.
Now the firefighters are appealing to the community in West Yorkshire to sponsor them.
The men will get some of the money from the West Yorkshire and Rescue Service's Sports and Social club, but they need more.
Gary Davies, Team co-ordinator, said: "The team would appreciate any offers of sponsorship and we will be holding events and encouraging people around the county to help get the team to Hong Kong.
"We hope to make the county proud and are all training very hard."
The West Yorkshire team was quite successful in last year's games held in Sheffield. They are hoping that in the next games they will do just as well.
Adrian Spencer, treasurer for the Sports and Social Club, said: "They will be representing West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, an organisation that sits at the heart of the community and serves its people in times of emergency. It will be fantastic to see West Yorkshire represented in Asia."
Anyone wishing to sponsor the team can contact Gary on 01422 365381.
