Fundraisers to put best feet forward on firewalk for hospice

DARING fundraisers can take on a firewalk to help raise money for Willow Wood Hospice.

The hospice is constantly updating its fundraising calendar to bring the best, most fun and most challenging events to Tameside and Glossop.

One such event is the Firewalk, which has had many calls for its return since the last one in 2013.

Chris Hayden, event organiser, said: “It’s probably the shortest sponsored walk we’ll ever hold at just 20 feet long but is certainly one of the most challenging!

“We’re hoping for at least 50 people to put their best foot forward and join us on Sunday, September 27.

“We’re holding it at Stalybridge Fire Station but hope that doesn’t dampen anyone’s enthusiasm.”

The Firewalk is being held jointly with the fire brigade, which is putting on a fun day starting at 5pm.

There will be fairground rides, music, stalls, refreshments, a mini fire engine, a fire parade pump and lots more, with all proceeds from the fun day going to the Fire Fighters Charity.

Before the Firewalk commences at 7.30pm, all participants must attend an inspirational seminar, led by organisers Time4Change. The registration fee is £25 and is only open to those aged 16 years and over.

Willow Wood hopes every participant will raise a substantial amount in sponsorship, and to make it easy has a Firewalk fundraising card available.
