Frome Firewalking Fundraiser

This November, Somerset Charity SOS Africa is turning up the heat and laying down the ultimate fundraising challenge... a Sponsored Firewalk Fundraising Event at Frome College.

Frome Firewalk Charity Fundraiser

There are still a few places remaining... Email [email protected] to Firewalk for SOS Africa

Taking place on Saturday 12th November between 6pm and 9pm, we are challenging 50 brave fundraisers to Firewalk and raise £100 each to enable us to build a new classroom for after-school care and remedial support in Somerset West, South Africa in 2017.

Practised for thousands of years, firewalking is seen as both the definitive mental test and the most inspirational journey you will ever take. It involves walking barefoot along 20 feet of red-hot wood embers measuring temperatures of around 800 degrees.

The Frome Firewalk will raise funds to build a new SOS Africa classroom in Somerset West, South Africa


6pm - Firewalkers Arrive and Sign In @ SOS Africa Tent

6.30pm - Firewalking Seminar for Firewalkers

(Fire Juggler, Hog Roast, Frome FM and Firewalk Lighting will entertain spectators)

7.30pm - Firewalking Begins
