A fiery fundraising challenge!

Our hottest ever challenge!

St Oswald’s is taking part in a World Record attempt for the most people to complete a Firewalk consecutively – but we need YOUR help!

We are aiming to set the Guinness World Record alight at an event at Kingston Park Stadium on Wednesday 28th November 2018. This exciting challenge, in partnership with Challenge Northumberland, will see hundreds of people literally walk over hot coals to raise funds for St Oswald’s.

Could you and your colleagues handle the heat and put together a team brave enough to walk the burning path? It’s a team-building exercise with a difference, with the added bonuses of becoming record breakers, all while supporting a local charity.

We are thrilled to be part of this exciting World Record Attempt and urge the businesses who support us to get behind this World Record attempt! This is a great event for our supporters who like a unique challenge to get their adrenaline going, and we look forward to being part of the fun.

Safety is of the utmost importance, so you’ll a undergo training for around one hour whilst the fire walk lanes are being prepared. Once the fire has burned to red-hot embers it’s prepared for the walk leaving a 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit path. Participants are then invited to walk across the coals barefoot one by one.
If you’d like to take part in this fiery fundraiser you and your colleagues can sign up for our hot offer price of just £25 per person. We ask all our firewalk participants to aim to raise £100 through donations and sponsorship to complete the challenge – why not put a team together and set a fundraising target, asking colleagues, friends and family to donate towards your efforts.
