Woman to walk on coals for St Luke's Hospice
A woman keen to make her 60th birthday go with a bang will be braving an ordeal by heat to raise money for a hospice.
Fiona Bay will be walking over hot coals to raise money for St Luke’s Hospice, in Kenton, as part of a to-do list of extreme activities to complete before her birthday in November.
The St Luke’s Fire and Glass walk taking place this Halloween is the final challenge on her list of 60 activities which has included gliding, a spider phobia course at London Zoo, axe-throwing and scuba diving.
She said: “I am woman of extremes and I am extremely excited about the opportunity to do this challenge and at the same time raise funds for the hospice.
“I am also extremely nervous of failing, but failure is not an option in the ‘60 list’. In other words, if I don't manage it on the first attempt, I will have to keep trying until I am successful.
“This is not good for my poor feet but it will be a privilege to raise as much money as possible for St Luke's.”
The Fire and Glass walk involves people walking along 30ft bed of coals glowing at 1,200F, or a 30ft bed of broken glass, on Thursday 31 October at 6pm at Claremont High School in Kenton.

During recent years the hospice has received less government funding but an increase in demand for its services.
In order to keep running and providing services to the people of Harrow and Brent St Luke’s needs to raise £3million.
