Stories And News Latest News Firewalkers stoke up £5,493 In this adrenaline-fuelled event which required an open mind and a determination to succeed, every walker was led safely over ten metres of hot coals heated to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit (648 degrees Celsius) by certified instructors, UK Firewalk. Local drumming band Batala Portsmouth heated up the atmosphere with their authentic Samba Reggae Music, and Nando's rewarded all the walkers with flame-grilled fare after the event. Glen Waters, who walked with wife Diana and raised £450, said: When I asked my wife if she wanted to go on a hot date, I'm pretty sure she wasn't thinking about firewalking! But it was an amazing experience to be able to take part in something unusual like this and at the same time raise money to help people living with cancer in our local area. All of the money raised will be used to provide practical and emotional support to people living with cancer in Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight.
