Description

A truly exhilarating experience! Step out of your comfort zone and face your fears whilst raising funds for Leckhampton Court Hospice! We are really on fire about hosting this exciting event, having spoken with Sue Ryder Dee View Court who have hosted a similar event and the firewalking training experts, B.L.A.Z.E. We'd like to thank A&E Fire & Security for kindly sponsoring the event and Speedy Skips who are supporting the firewalk.

So, what exactly is Fire Walking?

It's the practice of walking barefoot on hot embers. The challenge is designed to help transform fears and encourage participants to do things they didn't think possible. Taking part in a Fire Walk will almost certainly show you that there is more to reality than you think and that the many limitations we experience are self-imposed.

What’s the best thing to wear on the night?

There are no special requirements regarding clothing, though casual, comfy clothing is best. All you need to do is roll up the bottom of your trousers so that they don’t get dirty and tights would need to be removed before the walk. Your feet are going to be sooty afterwards so we'd advise you bring a spare pair of socks with you!

What does it feel like?

Opinions vary... A number of people don’t remember having any physical sensation at all during the experience - some say it was warm and some even say it was cold!? Afterwards, we are sure you will feel completely exhilarated!

Is there an age limit?

Yes, participants need to be 14 years of age or older to take part in this challenge.

Why Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice?

As a fundraising group we are passionate about organising events to raise vital funds for the compassionate and expert care provided by Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice. Their services include the 16-bed in-patient unit, the only facility of its type in the county, a Day Hospice & Hospice at Home care which means they can go out into the community and care for people in their own homes. They also offer family and bereavement support.

The fundraising group formed in the summer of 2018 and we are continuously working on an exciting calendar of events in order to raise those funds. We are so excited to add the firewalk to the calendar this year - a number of group members are also going to be participating!
