There’s still time to sign up for a charity challenge that will really test your mettle.

Chapel-en-le-Frith’s Blythe House Hospice still has a few places left for two of their most challenging events. Once again joining forces with The Royal Oak at Hurdlow, the hospice hopes that people will sign up to walk bare foot over red-hot embers measuring around 800 degrees, or make the dash over broken glass to help raise much needed cash.

Last year’s firewalking event raised an incredible £6331 for Blythe House and this year participants may choose to take part in either or both events. Spectators are very welcome.

Firewalk and glasswalk co-ordinator Cliff Mann, founder of Time4Change and the most experienced firewalking instructor in Europe, said: “Firewalking and glasswalking are challenge events, and the decision to walk across hot coals or broken glass is dramatically life changing.

“I have led literally thousands of people from all walks of life during my 20 years as an instructor.

“I hope people come on board to raise as much money as they can for Blythe House Hospice.”

The firewalk and glasswalk will take place on Friday September 27 at The Royal Oak, Hurdlow. Glasswalk training, taking one hour will start at 5.30pm, immediately followed by the glasswalk.

A two hour training session will be held before the firewalking starting at 7.00pm, with the firewalk taking place at approximately 9.00pm.

Registration costs £20 for each event and places are strictly limited. To receive a registration form or for further information, please contact Lucy Marsden at Blythe House Hospice on 01298 815388 or lucy.marsden@blythehouse.co.uk.
