Staff from Forth Housing Association took part in a charity firewalk by walking barefoot across a bed of burning coals (600-800 degrees fahrenheit) and managed to raise over a £1000 in the process.

This was to fundraise for Start-up Stirling which operates to assist and support families and individuals experiencing homelessness and financial hardship by providing home starter and well being packs, listening/befriending support and crisis food packs.

John Cameron, Forth’s director, said: “The Firewalk was a great experience and managing to help Forth’s nominated charity was a great bonus. Unfortunately, many Stirling families are now having to rely on Start-up for their support. Each week 150 people receive food from Start-Ups Crisis Food Banks, 40 of these are children.”
