Lord Mayor to walk in a blaze of glory

Liverpool’s Lord Mayor is showing just how far she is prepared to go for her charities this week by taking part in a ‘daring’ fire walk.

The Lord Mayor, Councillor Sharon Sullivan, will be one of a number of volunteers who will be hot-footing it across the coals at Liverpool Cricket Club, Aigburth Road on Wednesday 31 October from 6pm.

Councillor Sullivan said: “I am hoping that by taking part in an event that is both unusual and challenging I can raise not only much needed funds, but the profile of the Lord Mayor’s Charities and the Little Heroes Cancer Trust.

“I am not sure if I am more excited or nervous about taking on this challenge but I do know that I will definitely be putting my feet up for a while after this event!

“I would urge as many people as possible to take five minutes to log on and make a donation, no matter how small, to these worthy causes.”

All monies raised will be split between the Little Heroes Cancer Trust and the Lord Mayor’s Charities which are, the Merchant Navy, Dockworkers, Sea Cadets and Carers and everyone taking part will receive training by professional instructors before the firewalk to ensure their safety and instructors will be on hand throughout the event.
