Daring ‘soles’ required to take part in fiery fundraiser for MS Society
Exeter’s Princesshay will be sizzling when it hosts a 20ft long fire walk in its main square to raise money for the MS Society.
Daring ‘soles’ are being asked to put themselves forward for the challenge on Thursday November 1st, which will involve walking over a 20ft stretch of embers, burning at around 1200 degrees Fahrenheit.
A motivating training session will take place prior to the 9pm walk which will guide participants in how to put mind over matter and ‘fire walk’ safely. Friends, family and spectators are invited to come along and cheer on the dare devilling participants and soak up the exciting atmosphere.
It is being hosted by the MS Society, the charity of the year for Land Securities, the company which, jointly with the Crown Estate, owns Princesshay.

An estimated 1,900 people in Devon are affected by multiple sclerosis. Loss of sight and mobility, extreme fatigue, cognitive problems and depression are just some of the symptoms that can affect people with MS, which is why fundraising for research is vital.
Wayne Pearce, Princesshay Centre Manager, said: ‘We are excited to host one of Exeter’s first ever firewalk challenges. Not only is this a fantastic opportunity for people to take on a challenge and have the experience of a lifetime, they will also be raising vital sponsorship to provide the MS Society with essential funds to continue with the fantastic work they do. This is particularly in terms of the research carried out in order to establish a cure for what is an incurable disease.’
The MS Society has hosted other firewalk challenges around the country. A fiery challenger at one of these events said: ‘The firewalk was a once in a lifetime experience. The trainer really inspired us and encouraged us to turn our fear into positive energy – all in all, it was great fun!’
To participate, a registration fee of £25 is required and participants will need to raise a minimum of £125 in sponsorship.
