That is the question posed by teaching supply agency 3D Recruit.

The firm is urging people to join it at Buster’s Charity Firewalk.

The event takes place at Mercure Hotel in Maidstone on September 29, and individuals who rise to the challenge can raise money for any charity of their choice.

3D Recruit recruitment manager Amy Gudgeon said: “I am taking part in Buster’s Charity Firewalk and am looking for other brave and feisty people to come along and walk those hot coals with me.

“You can use this as an opportunity to raise money for local charities of your choice. So why not add it to your fundraising calendar this year?

“It’s been a hot topic of conversation in the office, and I’ve got lots of colleagues really interested in doing it.”

The challenge is organised by Inspire Schools, for whom 3D Recruit acts as a corporate ambassador with a special interest in promoting reading-reward scheme Buster’s Book Club and the Sussex Teacher of the Year Awards.

Thirty per cent of the money raised by the firewalk will be used to fund Inspire Schools’ educational initiatives, with the rest going to the charities nominated by participants, who should aim to raise a minimum of £100.

Inspire Schools chief executive Simon Dolby said: “Respect to Amy for being so game and fearless in signing up for the firewalk.

“I hope she succeeds in inspiring others to use the event to raise much-needed cash for their favourite charities.

“And we are so grateful to 3D Recruit for championing Buster’s and our Teacher of the Year Awards, and helping us to motivate more children to read more at home, and to share and celebrate the benchmark work of inspirational teachers.”

The minimum age for taking part in the firewalk is 18.
