Firewalk 2021


On Sunday 10th October 32 brave fundraisers took part in Mid and North East Essex Mind’s inaugural Firewalk, walking barefoot over red hot embers to celebrate World Mental Health Day 2021. The event, held at Colchester United Stadium raised over £7,000 to support our services.

Participant Julie Arthur said:

‘I didn’t believe that I could actually do it until I did, what a fantastic feeling to achieve something amazing, especially getting sponsorship to support Mid and North East Essex Mind on World Mental Health Day.  I would encourage everyone to take a moment to think about their mental health and the mental health of others, anything is possible even walking on fire.”
