Edinburgh Bereavement charity called on daring locals to brave a firewalk
Local charity, Held In Our Hearts, again hosted their popular FireWalk event on 4th December at Edinburgh Leisure’s Craiglockhart Tennis Centre, and raised an incredible £10,000!
The FireWalk was a chance for locals to take part in a once in a lifetime challenge, daring to be different, and walking over hot coals to raise much-needed funds for the charity’s work supporting parents whose babies have tragically died.
24 walkers walked over hot coals to fundraise for our families. Our second annual Firewalk, and first in person event for two years saw our walkers brave coals of 630 degrees. Some walked once, twice, and in fact three times and made it a charm!
Tracy Watt, Held In Our Hearts Fundraising Manager, stated: “It was a magical evening to see people come together and share common goals and values. It was inspiring to see walkers cheering each other on and sharing their elation as they got to the end.”
MSP Jeremy Balfour, who took part in the FireWalk for the charity said: “The Fire Walk run by Held in our Hearts was a superb event, it was great fun for those taking part. More importantly, it raised money for the work of the Charity and brought people together to celebrate face to face.”
Held In Our Hearts FireWalk was run by UK Firewalk, one of the UK’s leading experts who specialise in corporate and charity firewalking and glass walking events. The UK FireWalk team ensured the safety of every participant and viewer involved through the presence of official safety experts.
