Buster’s Charity Firewalk takes place on Sunday September 29.

Participants can raise money for charities of their choice, but the event provides the perfect opportunity to generate much-needed cash for good causes selected by KM Group editors providing vital support and services to veterans, young people, victims of crime, individuals affected by isolation or mental illness, and families of children with life-limiting medical conditions.

The KM charities of the year are Victim Support, the Stroke Association, Royal British Legion Industries, Sheppey Sea Cadets, the RNLI, Riverside Active Lives Network, the Net Community Hub, Meadowfield School, Changing Minds and child-cancer charity Eva’s Angels.

The firewalk takes place at Mercure Hotel in Maidstone, and participants will receive expert training and support to enable them to walk barefoot and unharmed across a strip of hot coals with a temperature of more than 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

Thirty per cent of the money raised will be used to fund the KM Charity Team’s educational initiatives, with the rest going to the charities nominated by participants.

The minimum age for taking part is 18, and participants should aim to raise a minimum of £100 each.

The firewalk is supported by HR specialists 3D Recruit.
