Walk on the fire side
“You’d help me out if I need a favour wouldn’t you Steve?”
“Of course, Annie”
“You’d chase a spider out of the bath for me?”
“You’d fight off big dogs?”
“Walk over a bed of hot coals?”
“Fine, here’s your sponsorship form, we go Friday at 7 pm”
And that’s how I got conned into walking across burning coals by our new presenter Annie.
So, on the Friday night we arrived at Aylesbury Rugby Club and presented ourselves to the organisers.
Perhaps the most worrying thing of the night was signing the disclaimer saying that you knew that fire-walking was dangerous and if you got injured – well it was tough luck.
We had excellent preparation and training from UKFirewalk and then we went out to face the heat.
Having completed the walk we interviewed many of the people who took part and got some great clips for our breakfast show and a bigger version which you can access below.
Thanks so much to the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity, UKFirewalk and all of the walkers who helped make it such an enjoyable night.
Annie and I would also like to thank all our sponsors who allowed us to raise over £450 for this extraordinary charity.
My only worry is what Annie will think up next…
