Organisers say there is still time for anyone wanting to take part in a fire walk for a local hospice to sign up.

The walk on hot coals is in aid of Cransley and Cynthia Spencer hospices, and participants need to raise at least £100 in sponsorship for the event, which takes place at Wellingborough Old Gramarians Rugby Club on Friday, February 22.

And for those who have never tried their hand – or their foot – at fire walking, full training from Cliff Mann, Europe’s most experienced fire walking instructor, will be given on the night.

A £25 deposit is required to secure a place on the night. Registration opens at 6.30pm, with a motivational workshop at 7pm and the walk at 9pm.

There will also be food, drinks and a quiz that evening.
