Get fired up!
Get fired up for the Forget Me Not Firewalk!
Want to achieve what you never thought possible? Fire up your weekend with our sizzling 10th birthday special event – our first-ever Forget Me Not Firewalk!
Braving a barefoot walk over burning coals at a temperature of around 550oC, it’ll be the ultimate mind-over-matter experience! But don’t worry, you’ll be in the safe hands of Guinness World Firewalking Record Breaker, Scott Bell from UKFirewalk.
Taking place at our very own Russell House and safely socially distanced, this thrilling challenge is also the first face-to-face event we’ve been able to bring you in over a year. We can’t wait to get the fire started!
A little too hot for your toes? How about taking on our LegoWalk instead? Great for any under 12s who want to join the fun or for those who just can’t stand the heat. Be warned though – as anyone who’s stood on a stray LEGO brick can confirm – this is no easy option!

Why firewalk for Forget Me Not?
Despite the vital work they do, children’s hospices only receive a tiny proportion of the funds they need from the government or NHS. That’s why, as a charity, we rely on fundraising and the support of our local community. By taking on our Firewalk or LegoWalk and getting your friends and family to sponsor you, you’ll help us continue to be here to support local children with life-shortening conditions, their families and families living with loss.
