Held at Betws Rugby Club, the exciting event fromBlaze Firewalk Challenge will see brave volunteers sponsored to walk across a 20ft x 3ft path of ash heated to a sizzling 1,236 degrees.

“We are so proud of everyone who has agreed to take part. Men and women from across the area have signed up and we have an entry flying fromBerlin. They have been so busy fundraising and we have raised £3,555 already, but hope to top £5,000.

“We want people to come along and support the event by sponsoring or buying tickets – It’s going to be an amazing night.”

As well as the fire walk, there will be a raffle, refreshments and entertainment.
