Face the flames for The Forever Friends Appeal

Are you brave enough to walk barefoot over red hot embers smoldering at over 1000 degree Fahrenheit? The Forever Friends Appeal are currently looking for people to take part in the challenge of a lifetime – a Firewalk taking place on Sunday 20th March 2016 at 6pm at Bath’s Lansdown Cricket Club.

The Firewalk is being organized in association with Time4Change and its founder Cliff Mann, the most experienced firewalking instructor in Europe. The entry fee for the event is £30 and all participants are expected to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship towards the RUH Cancer Care Campaign, or a ward or department of their choice at the hospital. The Forever Friends Appeal’s RUH Cancer Care Campaign is currently over half way to achieving its aim of raising £8.5 million, which will contribute vital funds to the building of a pioneering new Cancer Centre for the Royal United Hospital in Bath.

Events & Community Officer at the Appeal, Emily Lynch says: “Taking part in a Firewalk is an incredible way to challenge yourself, increase your confidence and overcome your fears while making a real difference at the Royal United Hospital. Last year’s Firewalk raised over £6,000 for the RUH Cancer Campaign, as well as other wards and departments at the hospital. Back by popular demand, this is the second year that the Appeal has organized a Firewalk and as such, we’re encouraging all of our supporters to face their fears and raise money to help us transform care for patients and their families at the RUH”.

Places are limited and online entries are now open! To sign up online today and make a real difference to patients and their families at the RUH, please visit our Firewalk page or contact Laura Pearce on 01225 821535.
