Animal lovers are being given the chance to walk across burning wood embers to raise money for charity.

Secret World Wildlife Rescue in East Huntspill will hold a fire walk on February 17 which will see people stepping across ground which can reach temperatures of up to 800 degrees.

Head of external relations Samantha Hannay said: “The beauty of a fire walk is it is open to everyone and doesn’t require months of training.

“It is more mind over matter and will be one of the most memorable journeys you will ever undertake.

“What could be more inspirational than knowing your walk will help raise money for ill, injured and orphaned wild animals?”

The event will begin at 5pm and registration is priced £25.

A minimum sponsorship of £100 is requested and entrants must be aged 18 or over.
