ARE YOU BRAVE ENOUGH TO WALK OVER HOT COALS FOR YOUR HOSPICE?
On Wednesday 4th November 2020 Pendleside Hospice are hosting a FIREWALK and are looking for brave soles (pun intended!) to cross the burning hot red embers which are around 1200 degrees Fahrenheit!
The walk will take place at Pendleside Hospice (Colne Road, Reedley, Burnley, BB10 2LW) from 7pm. You will receive an online information and safety briefing prior to the event date, then outside the Hospice you will go one by one across fire.
There is a maximum of 100 places available for this challenge, so get signed up now to avoid disappointment! Registration costs £25 per person (non-refundable) and each walker is expected to raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship in aid of Pendleside Hospice. Each walker must be aged 12 years or over on the day of the event and those aged 17 or under need to be accompanied by an adult – this person does not need to be registered/take part in the Firewalk.
To make sure this is a safe event and that it can still go ahead under government guidelines, you will be given online training and information prior to the walk, rather than in person indoors, so that the whole event will take place outdoors to ensure social distancing measure are in place. Also, the event will be live-streamed on Facebook so that friends and family of participants can view the walk remotely and the numbers in attendance can be kept to a minimum. All attendees will be required to adhere to social distancing and stay at least 1 meter apart. Anyone with Covid-19 symptoms must not attend the event.
