The ultimate motivational evening. Triumph by walking barefoot over hot coals to end homelessness.

About this event

Welcoming those who want to take a stand against homelessness.

Can you stand the heat? Are you brave enough? Would you like to have a huge sense of achievement? Or like to build self-belief and prove to others how fearsome you are?

Whatever your motive this is a truly breathtaking opportunity to challenge yourself and push your self-belief to the limit! Although not for the faint-hearted we will be with you every step of the way (no pun intended) providing you with quality training from Time for Change ahead of the public event where friends and family will be on hand to cheer you on. Once you have mastered the decision to not let fear inhibit your actions there really is nothing stopping you. And once you have mastered this sense of empowerment what else will you achieve?

With a long history going back centuries across cultures around the world, isn’t it time you experienced this ultimate test of faith?

There is a registration fee of £15.00 per person and we encourage all participants to pledge to raise a minimum of £100 per person.

Why Take Part in the Chippenham Firewalk?

976 homeless people died across the four nations last year. By taking part in The Chippenham Firewalk and fundraising for Alabaré and Homes for Veterans you will be making a difference in the lives of others living in North Wiltshire. Alabaré has recently opened a new home in Chippenham for people in mental health crisis as an alternative to hospital admission, while Unity House in Chippenham provides up to 30-bed spaces for those seeking emergency accommodation or supported accommodation. All funds from this event will go to support Alabaré services in this area.

Together, we can end homelessness.

On the Night

As a group, all participants will receive full instruction by the team at T4C who have spent the last three decades guiding literally thousands of people from all walks of life over hot coals. T4C is recognised as the most experienced UK firewalking instructor.
