The Christie Charity Weekly Lottery temporarily suspended

Ignite your spirit of adventure and brave the TalkTalk Firewalk for The Christie this winter. 

Firewalking is the practice of walking barefoot on hot embers. A firewalk can help overcome fear and inspire people to do things they didn’t think possible. It’s the perfect challenge for team building or personal development.

The TalkTalk Firewalk is managed by industry experts, UK FIREWALK. Before taking your first footsteps across the fiery coals, they will provide an hour-long training session to help you perfect your technique and spark your excitement for the challenge ahead!

The firewalk starts at 4pm in the car park at Soapworks, Ordsall Lane, Salford, M5 3TT. Please arrive at 3pm for your firewalk training.

Please note: this is a TalkTalk employee event.

Refreshments will be served after the event so please be sure to include your dietary requirements on your registration form.

Join Team Christie today and you can help us to make a real difference to the lives of cancer patients and their families. By taking part in this event, you will help ensure The Christie continues to provide world-class care and remains at the forefront of pioneering cancer research.

Is there an age limit?
Minimum age is 12 years old. 12 to 17 year-olds must have a parent/guardian consent to take part in the event and must be supervised at all times.

How far is The Christie Firewalk?
The Christie Firewalk is around 6-foot-long, depending on the venue and weather conditions.

Will I burn my feet?
Before you take to the coals, you will attend a 1-hour training session on how to walk across hot coals safely and confidently.

Can I come in fancy dress?
You can wear fancy dress, but you must have bare legs up to your knees.

How long does The Christie Firewalk last?
The training session lasts 1 hour, and the firewalking will last around another hour.

Can I bring spectators?
Yes, the more the merrier – although spectators aren’t able to attend the training session.

What if it’s raining?
A firewalk can still go ahead in the rain because the heat evaporates the moisture before it reaches the fire.

Can anyone take part?
As long as you can walk, you can take part in a firewalk. You can also be aided across the coals if you need extra support.

If you’re in doubt if you can take park in a firewalk or not, please seek advice from your doctor.
