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:
