Catrina - 2018 Firewalker

“I decided to take part in the Santa Sizzle as I have been lucky enough to meet some of the young people at the Deaf Academy and know what a difference the new campus will make to them. I’m not really an adventurous or brave person but sometimes you just have to take on a challenge so I went for it and signed up!

The first challenge was to raise the £100 fundraising. I thought it might be hard but my friends and family really got behind me and the online sponsorship page and FaceBook donate were so easy to set up – I was AMAZED and delighted when I managed to raise £382 just by asking (and prompting my friends a little)!

I was nervous on the day but everyone from the Academy and Firewalk UK were so lovely. Scott from UK Firewalk did a briefing which helped to dispel my nerves and the whole set up was really professional. When it came to my go I just went for it – and then did it another 3 times!!! The crowd and the cheers on the evening were amazing and I felt so proud afterwards – both for doing the challenge and also for supporting the Deaf Academy. It was a fabulous experience and my feet were fine afterwards! It’s amazing what you can do when you put mind over matter! I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face for days and I’d say to anyone – just do it.”
