A Harrow charity is looking for adventurous supporters to take on a ‘thrilling challenge’ at 7pm on 29 September at the Harrow District Masonic Centre to help fund end-of-life care.
Harrow residents will test their nerve against this ancient practice, by barefoot walking across red-hot embers that are over 600 degrees celsius – six times hotter than boiling water!
Participants, who will be given full training by a fire walking expert, can invite their friends and family to cheer them on and celebrate the moment they cross the hot coals.
Potential walkers can be reassured that the activity is safe and once completed, fearless walkers ‘can feel invigorated and empowered by the audacious act’, say St Luke’s Hospice.
Previous fire-walker, Hansa Shah, spoke of her experience: “I had been searching for a challenge and when the Firewalk was advertised I felt it would be the perfect place to start. Although my husband was very worried at the thought of me participating, it was the encouragement from my grandchildren that spurred me on to take part. It was the best thing I’ve done!
