At 9 pm on Friday this week (11th June 2021) intrepid volunteers will be walking on fire in aid of Salisbury Hospice Charity.
The event was postponed from its original date in February due to Coronavirus restrictions, but finally, the group of hardy people will finally walk the 15 feet of 550-degree coals.
The aim of the event is to raise much-needed funds for Salisbury Hospice Charity. The event looks to be on target to raise over £16,000 and you can support mySalisbury volunteer Andy Munns in his fundraising efforts here – Firewalk Justgiving Page
This year marks 40 years of Salisbury Hospice delivering outstanding care to its patients their families and carers. The firewalk, the charities first-ever, will take place in front of the stunning backdrop of Salisbury Guildhall.
Around 50 firewalkers will arrive a few hours before the main event and be receiving intense training from Scott Bell to be able to perform this unique mind-over-matter experience. Scott is the twice Guinness World Record holder for the ‘Greatest Fire Walking Distance’ by walking 328 feet on burning coals.
This is one of many events this year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Salisbury Hospice. News of a mySalisbury organised event for later in the year are coming soon!
