Firewalkers conquer the coals for local sight loss charity Vista

A group of 34 people took part in a firewalk organised by Paralympic champion, Libby Clegg to raise money for Vista, a local sight loss charity on Saturday 28th May at Loughborough University.

The event was hosted by UK Firewalk, one of the UK’s leading firewalking companies and the group were trained by Scott Bell (Twice Guinness World Record holder for the greatest distance walked on fire) and then walked across hot coals with a temperature over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit.

Money raised from Vista’s Firewalk will go towards the many services for people affected by sight loss in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, such as rehabilitation, support for children and young people and residential services for adults with sight loss and learning difficulties.

Libby Clegg, Community Fundraiser at Vista said:

“A massive thank you to everyone who joined in and came along to support us on Saturday. Thank you for raising these much-needed funds for Vista and congratulations on completing the challenge!”
