We’d walk over hot coals to help those affected by amputation or limb difference, but would you do the same – literally – to help fundraise for Finding Your Feet?
On Friday 27th January Finding Your Feet we are hosting a sponsored firewalk at Skypark from 5:30pm-8:30pm and we’d love you to join us for this exhilarating and extreme event.
What is a firewalk? It is a 12ft barefoot walk across hot coals measuring 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s a real life changing experience.
It’s important to know The Walk Of Champions is more than just a FireWalking workshop. During this incredible, unforgettable few hours you will:
– Learn how to conquer fear and how our minds can be turned to confidence and certainty in ANY situation
– Tap into long lost reserves of confidence and belief before taking to the fire to take your 8 steps to Awesome!
– Learn how to easily access your own inner power and direct it to ANY task
– Rediscover deeply held belief in your own AMAZING potential and ability
– And, of course, use all of these INCREDIBLE new skills to take The Walk Of Champions.
These moments are where lives change. Yours can be one of them.
Walking on fire isn’t hard, in fact almost everyone can do it, young or old. The hard part is overcoming the fear. The workshop section of the event will teach you how to overcome any fear and you’ll get an opportunity to test out your new ‘mind over matter’ powers in a mini-challenge before the big event itself. Here’s a video to get you fired up!
A number of the troopers (FYF amputees) have shown an interest in taking part. Never one to back down from a challenge, we recruited help from the Firewalk organiser and his friends worldwide, and have worked out a way to make this happen. There are various options and work-arounds which will make it possible for all amputees to take part – upper limb, lower limb, double and even quadruple amputees – there’s a solution for you all! However, unfortunately we have been strongly advised that anyone with diabetes or any vascular conditions cannot participate, we know this will disappoint a few of our Troopers but your safety is a priority for us.
Entry costs just £15 per person plus we ask that you raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship each for Finding Your Feet. You can set up a fundraising page on BT MyDonate here.
– The firewalk is led by a qualified Firewalk instructor and Mind Coach who has led dozens of firewalks
– It is very rare for anyone to experience anything more uncomfortable than an occasional small blister (or ‘fire trophy’). You will be asked to sign a liability waiver form as part of the workshop for the firewalk and other activities, and will be taking responsibility for your own choices and wellbeing.
– Everyone decides for themselves whether to walk the coals, and when to do so, so be assured that you will not be coerced into doing anything that doesn’t feel right to you, the freedom of choice and the power are all yours!
– Minimum age is 13.

Art Exhibition: Glasgow Shadows
The first artist to feature in our gallery space in 2017 is award winning photographer Robin Johnson. ‘Glasgow Shadows’ is a collection of street photography. The images featured are from various areas of the city, documenting the lives of people and local architecture.
Robin said “I like to explore the varieties of texture and qualities of light found exclusively in Glasgow and to capture unusual urban moments that otherwise might pass unnoticed.
“The photographs are all digital and were taken over a number of years – from around 2007 right up to 2016.
The framed prints are available for purchase with prices ranging from £200 – £350.
