Fire Walk sparks a blazing success for fundraising

ZSL London Zoo stoked the fires to welcome 72 fearless firewalkers through its gates, alongside over 170 spectators who came to cheer on their friends and family.

While the spectators got to enjoy a late night tour of the zoo, our firewalkers were braced for the challenge ahead of them with an inspiring ‘Nothing Is Impossible’ seminar. Instructed by Survivorbility and their professional Fire Masters, our fundraisers were in capable hands when they were later led out to face their fears against the roaring hot coal pits.

One by one our firewalkers strolled over the coals – some more calmly than others. And in return for their brave efforts, ZSL was delighted to announce that collectively our firewalkers had raised over £18,000!

The top fundraiser on the night was Nigel Pridmore, who raised a wooping £1,190. In return for his outstanding efforts, he was presented with a lovely WholeFoods hamper.
