Brave the fire for injured wildlife

People are being asked to take on the hottest walk of their lives in aid of a wildlife.

The New Year is often the time for resolutions and if you are looking to challenge yourself then look no further.

Secret World Wildlife Rescue, based in Highbridge, is running a sponsored fire walk in February. They are looking for brave souls to put their best foot forward and walk over red-hot wood embers of up to 800 degrees.

Guaranteed to get you hot under the collar, the sponsored event will help British wildlife when they can’t help themselves. Secret World Wildlife Rescue makes a real difference to these animals, but with no government funding they rely on supporters to help.

Head of External Relations, Samantha Hannay said: “The beauty of a fire walk is that it is open to everyone and doesn’t require months of training. It is more mind over matter and will be one of the most inspirational journeys you will ever undertake. After all, what could be more inspirational than knowing that your walk will help raise money for ill, injured and orphaned wild animals? Come and join us for the event, it promises to be a lot of fun!”

The event takes place on Saturday February 17th. Fire-walking experts will be on hand throughout the event and full training will be provided before people walk the coals. Training will begin at 5pm and the walk will follow.

Registration is just £25, and each participant is asked to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship. Friends and family are all welcome to watch and provide moral support.

You must be 18 or over to take part. For more information, full terms and conditions and to download a sponsorship form visit
