This event has been postponed – we’ll get a new date out
Firewalking is one of those strange things that lots of us wonder about – people seem to be able to do it without getting burnt. If you have ever watched a firewalking event on TV you know that you always see a large, glowing bed of burning coals. The bed is around 10 feet long and the glowing coals are real. People actually do walk across the red coals in bare feet! How is this possible, and can anyone do it just as easily? Well you are about to find out!
First some assurances: This event is being run by the us as a unit, however the actual firewalk is being organised, managed and run by ‘Blaze firewalking’ who are professional, expert, well practiced and insured! They will give you full training before the event (on the day). It is worth having a look at their website.
22nd of November we are offering you the chance to walk on fire!
We don’t want this event to just be for our Jamboree Scouts – we want everyone to get involved! If you’ve ever thought about supporting Scouting then perhaps this is the event for you. It’s fun, challenging and a great talking point in the office! We’re also keen to get other Scouts involved, so anything raised over £100 can be given to another Scouting cause, such as the Harlem trip.
The big challenge is to walk on fire; the smaller one is to raise some funds! We need you to raise at least £100 of which your nominated participant (or the unit) will receive at least £50. We would advise you to ask your sponsors to pay immediately else you will be face with an even bigger challenge of finding them all again! 20 people need to give you a fiver! Easy.
Please aim to have completed your fundraising as soon as possible, and then send a cheque to Cranham Scouts Council at the address below along with a photocopy of your sponsorship form, or hand it to one of the leaders. You can also use the MyDonate system for online sponsorship – email email@example.com if you need more information.
The evening itself will be loads of fun, including a hog roast; we will be sending you 5 free entry tickets for you to give to your friends and family. Extras are available.
If you have any questions or would like to put your name down to walk, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for your help
