Would you walk over hot coals for Longfield?


Longfield Community Hospice is looking for brave daredevils to take part in its Festive Fire Walk on Friday 9th December.

The challenge is scheduled to take place in the hospice’s grounds in Minchinhampton, from 6-9 pm, where participants will walk 15ft over hot coals at 550 degrees Celsius.

The event will be supported by one of the UK’s leading Fire Walk companies, UK Fire Walk. Fire walkers will receive training from Scott Bell, who is a two-time Guinness World Record holder for the ‘Greatest Fire Walking Distance’.

Kirsty Owen-Hayward from Longfield’s fundraising team explained: “Please come along, face your fears and take on this amazing festive challenge for Longfield. We promise you’ll be in safe hands!

“Not everyone can say they’ve walked on fire, and you’ll be raising money for a worthwhile local cause, helping provide free care for patients across Gloucestershire and support for their families and carers too.”

The hospice is offering a 20 per cent discount on the cost of tickets for the rest of October – tickets are now just £24 per person. The hospice also asks that fire walkers pledge to raise £75 or more in sponsorship.

Numbers are limited so people are advised to register soon to avoid disappointment.
