A challenge of ice and fire

Game of Thrones star David Bradley (a.k.a. Walder Frey) was amongst guests at ZSL Walk of Fire and Ice, on Thursday 9 November, 2017, where brave challengers were encouraged to embraced their inner wildling and prowl barefoot across fire and ice to help protect wildlife.

The Walk of Fire and Ice saw fearless fundraisers tread barefoot across a path of burning coals or opt for an icy trek across broken (dragon) glass. 

Although participants didn’t win a seat on the Iron Throne, they certainly left with a huge sense of accomplishment, and the knowledge that their feat has helped wildlife around the world.

 The unique and exciting fundraising event was hosted to support and raise funds for international conservation charity ZSL’s projects in more than 50 different countries to protect animals and their habitats, and ZSL aims to raise £10,000 from the Walk of Fire and Ice to support its essential work to protect the wildlife across the world.
