An interview with a firewalker
Meet Scott, a twice Guinness World Record holder for the World’s Longest Firewalk, and Founder of UK Firewalk.
Scott will be at our very own charity firewalk taking place at the Willen Hospice gardens on Friday 1 March.
Why should people do a firewalk?
Walking on fire is a thrill seeking, personal challenge. People should do it because they want to do it, and in this case, because they want to raise funds for a great cause.
What’s the secret to doing a firewalk without burning your feet?
Belief and Science are required to walk on fire! Before doing the firewalk at Willen Hospice there will be an hour’s training where everyone taking part will get to learn much more about ‘the secret’.
What’s the history of the firewalk?
Fire walking has been recorded for many thousands of years and takes places all over the world, revolving around religious and tribal beliefs, or test of faiths. On the 1 March though, our participants will be doing it to raise money for Willen Hospice, as well as challenging themselves to do something incredible.
What can people expect on the day?
On the day participants will undergo that all important training. When the fire has burned to red-hot embers, it’ll be raked level and prepared for the walk. Participants then go to the fire, remove their footwear and one by one are invited to walk the coals.
If a firewalk is on your bucket list, sign up here and take on the challenge while raising vital funds for Willen Hospice.
