Fearless fundraisers have braved a walk over burning embers to raise thousands of pounds.

Cheering family and friends ringed the mini-arena set up at Albrighton Hall Hotel as 60 walkers stepped over the coals.

So far their efforts have raised more than £20,000, all of which will support families living with incurable illness in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales. 


To a soundtrack of suitably fire-themed songs, the fundraisers walked, danced and whooped their way across the bed of glowing embers specially prepared by UK Firewalk. 

Not happy with doing it once, many re-joined the snaking queue to walk for a second, third and even fourth time.  


Jessica Druce, area fundraiser, said: “Fire Walk 2023 was a roaring success and we’ve received some fantastic feedback. 

“So many people have said what a brilliant time they had and how much they had enjoyed it, even if a few of them were a little apprehensive beforehand!

“UK Firewalk was amazing organising it and dousing everyone’s fears and thanks too to the Albrighton Hall Hotel for letting us hold it in their beautiful gardens.


“But the biggest thanks go to our supporters, who, so far, have already raised a staggering £20,000-plus by facing their fears and hotfooting it across the red-hot burning coals. 

“Their kindness and generosity enable us to be there for thousands of local people, living with incurable illness, when they need us most.”
