Can you take the heat?

The Nolan Charity Fund is looking for fearless fundraisers to take on a charity fire walk in Carmarthen Park on Sunday 2nd July.

Participants will get expert tuition from two-time Guinness World Record holder Scott Bell who holds the record for the ‘Greatest Fire Walking Distance’ by walking 328 feet on burning coals, but don’t worry, anyone who signs up to take part only needs to walk 15 feet across soft smouldering hot coals after a one hour seminar from Scott where he will explain the history of fire walking and the technique behind it.

This is a great mind-over-matter challenge and a great fundraiser for charity. The event will raise money for the Nolan Charity Fund to help worthy causes in Wales with financial support, alongside raising funds for its charity of the year, Alzheimer’s Society Cymru.

Talking about the event, Nolan Charity Fund fundraising & events manager, Sarah Cleevely said:

“This is probably a challenge many people haven’t done before. We like to try and put on different and unusual events that encourage people to give them a go. It will be a great day and we encourage groups of friends, family and work colleagues to get together and enter, and raise money for worthwhile causes in Wales.”

The Nolan Charity Fund has so far donated over £25,000 and helped nearly 20 organisations with financial support in Wales since it began in 2015. In Carmarthenshire, Alzheimer’s Society Cymru, Myrddin Special Unit, Canolfan Elfed, Ysgol Saron, Nofio Sir Gar, Plant Dewi and the Carmarthenshire County Council Youth Support Service have already benefited from grants from the charity.
