The Friends of East Farleigh proudly present fundraising with a difference!

On the 21st of April 2012, we will be holding a professionally organised Firewalk across hot coals. We are looking for volunteers, over the age of 18, to be sponsored to take part in jointly raising money for the school library extension and The Heart of Kent Hospice.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, a truly life enhancing and challenging experience. It will benefit not only the school but an amazing charity. The Heart of Kent Hospice support individuals and their families in their greatest hour of need.

If you would like to participate in the Firewalk itself, then you'd need to pay a deposit of £25 and commit to raising a minimum of £150 in sponsorship. If you raise over £150 then the deposit sum will be reimbursed to you.

This is a professionally organised event by a company called Blaze. They have years of experience and an excellent safety record and have never lost a participant yet!

If you'd prefer to keep on cold land then we'd welcome your support sponsoring any of those that take part. Both Mr Sapwell and Mrs Fiz Boulton from East Farleigh Primary School will be taking part in the Firewalk.

The Firewalk itself will take part after sun down, at approximately 9pm on the Recreation Ground behind the school. We plan to make this a real social occasion by holding a barbecue to start at about 7.30pm (and no we won't be using coals from the bbq for people to walk on!).

We hope that this fundraiser will help us to get much nearer to funding the school library extension. The Heart of Kent Hospice provide free care and support but their annual running costs are over £3.6 million and only 29% of this comes from statutory funding - the rest is dependent on the generosity of the local community.

If you would like to take part in the Firewalk, or would like more information, then please fill in the reply slip below and return it marked for the attention of Lynda White. Posters have gone up on the noticeboard and around the school - please support us in making this a really brilliant event, not only for those taking part but those watching as well. This is a great opportunity to raise money for improving facilities for our children and those in the community with life threatening illnesses.

If you would like to take part or help out we would love to hear from you.
