Take the journey, bare foot, over red-hot coals measuring 800 degrees! There are no tricks, no special effects, just you and the fire. Can you handle the heat? We think you can!
Our Club charity of the year, Transitions UK are calling on any Hatters supporters out there to get involved and help support their forthcoming Firewalk event by taking part and raising sponsorship money.
This event is to raise money to help kick start out Transitions UK's next project, ASPIRE!
ASPIRE aims to provide mentoring and support to those young people at risk of offending and reoffending.
Ultimately helping them find a better pathway
