Firewalk in aid of St.Joseph’s Hospice

  • by

A group of 33 fearless firewalkers marched their way over hot coals on Wednesday evening at St Joseph’s Hospice, raising almost £11,500 between them.

It was a perfect evening for the ultimate challenge, with teams from local businesses, people walking in memory of a loved one, St Joseph’s Hospice staff and volunteers walking barefoot on hot embers at a mean temperature of 1236 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat was intense and so was the passion from everyone who took part.

Local Firefighter Joe Jackson based at Bethnal Green fire station said, “So I did a firewalk to raise money for St Joseph’s Hospice. Yes, this meant walking on burning hot coals. As a firefighter I didn’t know what to expect or how I was going to physically manage this. With some intense training the whole team of firewalkers managed the seemingly impossible, overcoming our doubts and fears to successfully raise a healthy amount of money for St Joseph’s.
