Jeff Wornham killed while saving lives in Stevenage fire
Many of us will have seen reports on the news about the Stevenage tower-block fire in which two brave fireman were killed on 2 February 2005 while trying to save a trapped woman. One of those heroic men was Jeff Wornham (K 89-95), brother of Tom Wornham (K 86-92).

Updated 14th Feb:
Tom has said that the funeral will be mainly a family affair, but that there is to be a Memorial Service for Jeff and for Michael Miller at St Albans Cathedral on the 15th March. He thanks those many friends who have called offering sympathy and support.

Lizzie Honeycombe (P91-98), Jeff's girlfriend of the last three years, told the East Anglian Daily Times he was a wonderful man and they had hoped to marry next year. See Read More for the full story. The Hertfordshire Fire & Rescue Service has made the following statement about offers of donations on behalf of the two firemen:

"Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service have been approached by members of the community asking if they can make donations to help the firefighters’ families so we have set up a Trust Fund, which will be known as The Stevenage Firefighters’ Fund. Donations can be made at local fire stations or, preferably, by post addressed to the Chief Fire Officer, Fire Service Headquarters, Old London Road, Hertford, Herts, SG13 7LD with cheques made payable to The Stevenage Firefighters’ Fund."

As an OF and as an ex firey I send my condolences to Jeff\'s family. There is always the risk of death or injury but it does not stop Firemen working to save lives and property.
I am very saddened by the loss of life and I am sure that the OF fraternity will giev any assistance that is required.
