Firewalk 2021

Register here!

Would you like to walk on fire? Kick off your shoes and join us for the warmest walk of your life!

On Friday 8 October Dorothy House we will be holding a Firewalk at Winsley starting at 6pm. The event costs £30 to enter and you need to raise an additional £200 in sponsorship which will go towards providing care to our community.

Whether it’s for the thrill of experiencing fear and taking action, or maybe you want to do something that is unique and challenging, this event is an exciting opportunity to learn more about yourself and leave with some treasured memories and hopefully both feet intact!

After being led through the preparation by one of the highly skilled Firewalk leaders from Phoenix, you’ll be ready to take on the exciting challenge of walking 10-12 feet across a bed of glowing coals, barefoot! The whole event is framed around the things in life that we make more difficult for ourselves. This can be through our thinking and even things we put off or avoid altogether because of our beliefs or the potential for a little discomfort. Everything we do on the night, including the Firewalk, is a metaphor for these challenges.

Invite friends and family to come along on the evening and watch (from a safe distance); we’ll have refreshments available for purchase. Spaces are limited so register your interest today using the form below.

All participants will receive an exclusive FREE t-shirt too!
