"It may be a bit uncomfortable and will defiantly require focus and mind over matter, but when I consider what my brave mum, sister and other cancer patients go through and how much suffering they endure I think the fire walk will be a walk in the park - albeit a hot one!"
Fire up your determination and inner strength and join Forest Holme Hospice to walk across hot coals to raise money for patients going through their own personal challenge.
Registration is just £25 and we ask for a commitment to raising £100 in sponsorship. Spectators welcome!
Places are limited so please sign up ASAP to secure your place! By registering you agree to the Conditions of Entry below. For more information call the fundraising team on 01202 670644.
What happens on the evening?

Fire Walkers will receive an hour of self-development training conducted by UK Fire Walk, one of the UK’s leading Fire Walk companies. This will help you learn how to utilise your focus and potential, taking you to where you want to go, in this case, across fire! Friends and family can relax and purchase food & drinks.
7.30pm – Fire Walking begins!
The fire has been prepared by UK Fire Walk and the temperature of the coals can be as hot as 1200 degrees Fahrenheit.
