The Oakleaf Firewalk


10 October 2019

Further information

Mental Health Charity Oakleaf Enterprise are hosting a fundraising Fire Walk in celebration of World Mental Health Day. They are giving supporters and local businesses the opportunity to challenge mind over matter by walking over hot coals and gaining sponsorship for Oakleaf. Oakleaf have been working tirelessly to support some of the most vulnerable adults in our community since 1997. Their beneficiaries are adults aged 16-67 suffering from any mental illness, including schizophrenia, depression, bi-polar disorder and anxiety. They address multiple problems of social isolation, unemployment, poverty and discrimination that their clients face. They help clients to overcome huge barriers and work with them to rebuild their future. Through work related training, wellbeing activities and a counselling service, this support gives individuals practical skills and the confidence needed to return to the workplace. With 1 in 4 people suffering with mental ill-health every year, Oakleaf are using the fire walk as an opportunity to celebrate World Mental Health Day in an endeavour to end the stigma surrounding mental health. The walk is a fantastic opportunity to challenge yourself, team-build and network with other local businesses and supporters of Oakleaf. The day will commence at 11am for participants, starting with an hour of training from Guinness World Record holder Scott Bell of UK Firewalk, followed by the walk, with certificates being presented by Oakleaf Patron Dame Penelope Keith. There will be a BBQ and a performance from one of the Oakleaf music groups to round off the day at 2pm. The entry fee is £30 (including lunch) plus a minimum sponsorship target of £70 to create a real fundraising impact for Oakleaf. Friends and family are encouraged to come along and cheer on the brave participants and there will be an opportunity for them to buy food and drink on the day.
