Clan Cancer Support is looking for thrill seekers to bare their soles as part of a daring fundraising challenge this November.

The charity is calling for people to take on a fire-walk in the grounds of its Aberdeen base with participants going barefoot over two metres of burning embers, emitting temperatures of around 500 degrees celsius

The event is due to take place on Saturday, November 19, with all proceeds used to help the charity provide free services for people affected by cancer across north-east Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.

Clan’s services include information and support, counselling, complementary therapies, social and wellbeing activities and dedicated support for children and families.

Ruth McIntosh, Clan’s charity development manager, said: “This is one of our more adventurous fundraising challenges and we’re excited to revive it this year as we return to more face-to-face fundraising activities.

“This is a unique and fun team activity and it’s also an opportunity for individuals to empower themselves and tick off a bucket list item. Aberdeen isn’t known for being warm in November, but we’ll be sure to change that on the night!”

Clan is coordinating the event in partnership with Fire Walk Scotland with the organisation providing a 90-minute briefing session ahead of the activity and health and safety support available to participants throughout the evening.

The event will take place from 6pm – 8pm on Saturday, November 19, at Clan House in Aberdeen. Refreshments will be provided and spectators are welcome to attend.

Registration for the event costs £20 with individuals encouraged to achieve a £100 fundraising target.
