Walk on fire for Mental Health Resource!

This is going to be your shortest, hottest and scariest walk of 2020 but you can help Mental Health Resource by taking part and raising some funds us at Buster’s Firewalk in Maidstone!

The event takes place on Sunday 30th October 2020 at the Mercure Great Danes Hotel in Maidstone. The Firewalk starts at 7pm but you will need to arrive at 5.30pm for check-in and your briefing. The walkers will be trained by Scott Bell (Twice Guinness World Record holder for the greatest distance walked on fire) and then walk across hot coals with a temperature over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit!

Dominic Comins from the KM Charity Team and the Buster’s Book Club project urged people to take the challenge to support Mental Health Resource: “It sounds strange asking people to walk over hot coals, but it is all in the aid of charity! It is a mind over matter challenge and one that you can tick off your bucket list .”

Participants should aim to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship. 70% of sponsorship raised goes to Mental Health Resource and 30% will go to the children’s road safety department at the KM Charity Team.
