Anyone who would walk over hot coals to support their favourite good cause has the chance to do just that at Buster’s Charity Firewalk.
The event, organised by the KM Charity Team, is now open for booking by brave fundraisers ready to take the shortest and hottest walk of their lives.
Participants who individually raise more than £200 for their chosen cause will be entered into a draw to win a spa day for two. The prize includes massage treatments or an afternoon tea.
UK Firewalk will host the event and Scott Bell, who has twice set the world record for longest distance walked on fire, will provide the training. Participants will be in safe hands as they walk across coals at a temperature of more than 500 degrees Celsius.
Buster’s Charity Firewalk will take place at the Mercure Great Danes Hotel in Maidstone at 7pm on Sunday, May 20 and is open to anyone aged 18 or over.
Event organiser Dominic Comins, of the KM Charity Team, said: “Our challenge events give people the opportunity to push themselves out of their comfort zone and try something completely different.
“This is a truly unforgettable experience – and all to the benefit of any good cause of your choice.”
Charities hoping their supporters will hot foot it to the event include Kent Air Ambulance, East Kent Hospitals Trust, Kent MS Therapy Centre, Heart of Kent Hospice, Kent Wildlife Rescue Service, Victim Support, the Blackthorn Trust and Trinity Fencing CIC.
The event is named after the mascot for Buster’s Book Club, the KM Charity Team’s literacy scheme for children, which will receive a small share of funds raised.
