  • Charity firewalk for Action on Hearing

    Gilly’s firewalk raises £605 for charity Action on Hearing Loss

    In an earlier blog we told you that our Practice Manager, Gilly Wright, was about to do a charity firewalk. Well, we’re thrilled to report that Gilly has raised £605 for hearing charity Action on Hearing Loss, by doing a firewalk on the 2nd November. The firewalk involved walking barefoot across 15 feet of burning embers, which reach temperatures as high as 800 degrees!

    After the event, Gilly said:

    “The Firewalk was fantastic. The event was led by Scott Bell, twice holder of the Guinness World Record for the greatest fire walking distance. He was so inspiring that I didn’t once believe I couldn’t do it. In fact I ended up walking over the hot embers three times! I have raised £605 for Action on Hearing Loss and would like to thank everyone for their wonderful generosity and to Selma Becker for all her support. No blisters, just a big smile on my face and a cheer at the end.”

    Here are some photos from the event:

    Walking on fire for charity

    Gilly Wright will do a firewalk in NovemberOur new Practice Manager, Gilly Wright, is taking her role so seriously she has volunteered to walk across 15 feet of burning embers in London on 2nd November, for Action on Hearing Loss.

    No tricks, no special effects, just the firewalk. If she can walk a path as hot as 800 degrees, imagine what else she might be capable of!

    Action against Hearing Loss is the largest charity in the UK, funding research and support for people affected by hearing loss. Anyone who is interested in sponsoring Gilly on her firewalk please ask for the sponsorship form when you next call in to one of our hearing clinics. Or go to Gilly’s Just Giving page to donate.
