Release your potential, come FIREWALKING...
and raise money for your favourite charity!

Firewalking is the ultimate challenge, undertaken with no need for mountains, parachutes, bungees, machines or any other paraphernalia.

Firewalking is just you, the power of your mind, guidance from the Crew and a few metres of red hot coals, set up pretty much anywhere in the UK - be it City Centre or remote rural.

A Firewalk empowers, overcoming fear and self-doubt; it really can change your life.

If you can Firewalk, you can do anything!

GiveUsTheFish recognises that a successful Firewalk is a combination of two contrasting elements: it is an inpsirational, even spiritual event mixed with fiercely practical considerations of safety.

The GiveUsTheFish team will ensure that your Firewalking event will be carried out in a cool and professional manner.

Firewalking - the ultimate sense of achievement.





Firewalking FAQ's

With Firewalking, there are a number of frequently asked questions.

Here we try to reassure you...

Will I get injured?

The phrase "don't try this at home" could have been coined about Firewalking. 
It is only in a controlled situation, with the guidance of professionals, that you will have a safe and enjoyable experience. With the right tuition and preparation, Firewalking is safe. The reasons for this are complex and the theories as to why injury to the feet is avoided and many and varied. Forget the theories, we will ensure that the only effect on you of Firewalking is positive.

Can I get burned?

Of course. You are stepping on embers or coals which can reach temperatures of 1200o Fahrenheit. However, conducted correctly, a firewalk should result in no injury at all or at worse some small blisters. GiveUsTheFish takes its health and safety responsibilities very seriously and our number one priority is that no-one gets hurt.

Will I be coerced into Firewalking?

Absolutely not. At any Firewalking event, whether in a corporate group, for charity or as a social event, no-one is forced to participate. The whole essence of successful Firewalking is you taking the decision, feeling empowered to do it. If you're not comfortable and ready to do it, don't do it. No-one will criticise you. In fact more power can be experienced by deciding not to walk than actually walking.

What happens during a Firewalking workshop?

In an entertaining, interactive and informative couple of hours you will be carefully prepared to walk safely across a bed of red hot coals. A lot of time is spent exploring the power of human potential, from a scientific and psychological perspective. Various exercises bring you face-to-face with your fears and you learn how to overcome them in order to achieve your goals. Finally, the most amazing experience is presented to you: walking on fire...

Who can do this?

Anyone who can walk and is capable of understanding an informative presentation can walk on fire. Children are allowed to participate, although parental permission is absolutely required.


Although we have provided you with reassurance, GiveUsTheFish does still need to state that Firewalking does carry an inherent risk. Nothing on this website is intended as an encouragement to participate in any Firewalking activity without the direct supervision of a certified Firewalking instructor (and yes, we have one of those!)  No-one should attempt any activity described on this site without proper training and supervision. Should you choose to undertake activities of this nature without those precautions you do so entirely at your own risk.
