Mr Bryne with Martin Burglin from Clifton Road station, in Lowestoft, Jon Cook from Ipswich, and Adrian Mason from Woodbridge, joined a national team of 30 fire and rescue staff who have volunteered to raise money and support humanitarian charity Operation Florain.
The charity helps fire and rescue services in post-conflict countries round the world and together crew members across the UK are trying to raise about £50,000 to buy and equip four fire engines that will be driven across Europe to Macedonia.
Ipswich Town have pledged their support by agreeing to host a charity fashion show in April. The show will feature local boutiques and fashion outlets with clothes worn by volunteer models and firefighters.
