‘Do you dare to walk on fire? Put your bravery and courage to the test. Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre is bringing you the ultimate fundraising challenge… Conquer your fears and walk barefoot across 20ft of burning embers as hot as 1200ºF to support women and girls who have survived sexual violence.
Empowering and uplifting training will be provided by our lovely experts! This is training that will stay with you and help you overcome challenges in your everyday life. Our previous Firewalkers have described it as “exhilarating”, “engaging”, “lively and motivational”!
Event date: Saturday 28th October
Event venue: Anglia Ruskin University
If you are aged 14+ and would like to take part, please register by completing the online form. You will also need to donate £25 via our BT Mydonate page.
Please note minimum sponsorship is £125
We also welcome the friends and families of participants to come along. There will be refreshments, music and fire-themed entertainment! Plus a glitter stand for those who want to add a bit of sparkle to their Saturday!
We need to raise money for our 1-2-1 Counselling Service. This is a free face-to-face service that we offer to women and teenage girls who have experienced rape, childhood sexual abuse or any other form of sexual violence.
Our previous Firewalks raised thousands of pounds and helped us to open our email support service, which along with our helpline service continues to grow, offering free, anonymous support to women and girls. Money raised will also help us to keep our services going.
As a small charity, we rely on donations to be able to support survivors of sexual violence. We appreciate all donations, however large or small, to help with our work supporting women and girls who have experienced sexual violence.
What being a supporter of Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre means to a survivor:
- £20 will pay for three information packs for survivors
- £50 will enable a woman to access a counselling session
- £100 will help us recruit and train helpline volunteers
- £500 will help to keep the telephone helpline open for 6 months
