Sight Support Derbyshire held a firewalk at Pride Park on the 6th November and it was a blazing success.
36 people took part in the 2 hour training and walked barefoot over red-hot wood embers measuring around 1600 degrees.
Roger Davies, Derby County legend, took part and raised over £2500 for Sight Support Derbyshire. The whole event has raised £6500 making a real difference to local blind and visually impaired people.
Robin Toal from Sight Support Derbyshire says ‘I would like to thank everyone who took part – the firewalk was a tremendous evening. Everyone who took part has gained a unique experience whilst raising money for a local charity’.
After the success of last nights event, Pride Park will be hosting the first ever glass walk in March with all monies raised going to Sight Support Derbyshire.
Cliff Mann from Time4Change who ran the firewalk will also be running the glass walking event. Cliff is recognised as the most experienced firewalking instructor in the UK and is a fully qualified hypnotherapist, personal coach and veteran martial arts instructor.
Cliff says ‘Walking across four metres of smashed sterile wine bottle glass leaves you with an understanding that you are truly capable of anything and that the only thing that makes anything impossible is that if you believe it is.’
