Brave volunteers in Bath showed no fear as they took on 800 degree heat to raise money for the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity at Lansdown Cricket Club.
Walking on fire is not something that comes naturally, indeed most people would do anything to avoid their bare feet touching burning wood.
The session started with a safety briefing before they were set loose to take on the fire lane, where the temperature hit 800 degrees.
Head of Fundraising and Marketing, Emma Carter said: “This year we turned up the heat on our fundraising. Walking on fire takes a lot of courage, and I applaud everyone who took on the challenge.
“As well as facing the fear head on they have raised money that will help us to continue to provide this life-saving service across 6 counties.
“We need to raise £2.3 million each year to stay operational, and we rely on people like this, who go the extra mile to support us.”
