“It may be a bit uncomfortable and will definitely 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 challenge.

Registration is just £25 and we ask for a commitment to raising £100 in sponsorship.
