On Friday 11th June 65 dare-devil fire walkers turned out to walk 15 feet across 550c hot coals.
The walkers, including; mySalisbury’s Andy Munns, a man dressed as Fred Flintstone and many wearing Hospice t-shirts all braved the walk and raised a staggering amount of money.
The fundraisers took part in the charity’s first-ever Fire Walk event in the spectacular setting, in front of the Guildhall in Salisbury. The event is all part of Salisbury Hospice’s 40th Birthday celebrations.
Head of Fundraising for the charity, Paula Flower said:
‘It was a fantastic night and I’d like to thank our supporters for taking on this exciting challenge to raise vital funds for Salisbury Hospice. This year it is our 40th birthday, what a brilliant way to help us celebrate by raising over £30k towards this incredible service’.
