Hot foot to Horsham for our Firewalk

News and Blog

We’re getting ready to heat up Horsham with our second ever Firewalk! Now, we’re looking for brave soles to come forward and face the flames to raise funds for terminally ill people in our community.

We’re looking for 100 or more fearless fundraisers to put their bravery to the test and walk barefoot across 15 feet of red hot embers. Taking place on Friday 13 March 2020 at 7pm, in the Carfax, our thrilling Firewalk isn’t for the faint hearted!

People will be in safe hands as the event is held in partnership with UK Firewalk. And their expert staff will share the secrets of successful firewalking with everyone who takes part before they face the flames.

Alongside the Firewalk, there’s also a Lego brick walk for under 18’s who are keen to prove they’re not bricking it and tackle their own challenge to raise money for us. Anyone who has stepped on a stray LEGO brick before might argue that this challenge takes more guts than the Firewalk itself!

Arron Trott, Events Fundraiser at St Catherine’s said “We’re really excited to bring such a great challenge to Horsham. We hope lots of you will brave our first Horsham Firewalk or Lego walk and help us make the night a sizzling success! It’s a brilliant thing to be able to say you’ve hot footed across fire for your local hospice, and we can’t wait to celebrate with all our amazing firewalkers. Your efforts have never been more important because at the moment we can only care for one in three local people who need hospice care. But in the future, we want to be there for everyone facing death and bereavement. This is only going to be possible with your support.”
