Help raise money for local teenage cancer patients

This bonfire night on Friday 8th November 2013. Teenage Cancer Trust are offering individuals the chance to walk on hot coals and do something really different to help raise money for Teenagers and Young people who are living with a cancer diagnosis.

A Firewalk is the most inspirational journey you will ever undertake. It is as the name suggests: a bare foot walk over red-hot wood embers measuring around 800 degrees. No tricks, no special effects. Just you and the fire.

The **Falcons** got involved in fundraising for **Teenage Cancer Trust** at the end of last season and are supporting the charity until the end of the 2013/2014 rugby season.

Zoe Hull – Regional Fundraiser said: “We are really excited about this year’s event, it is going to be bigger than ever. It is something unique that participants will never forget and they will be raising money for our amazing units in the Freeman and the RVI.”

Alongside the Teenage Cancer Trust Firewalk the Newcastle Falcons will be hosting a bonfire night party which is open to all, tickets priced at £10 per person. The evening will see a whole host of entertainment taking place including a DJ and Flash the Falcon will also be in attendance along with some of the Falcons Rugby stars. Pop along to Kingston Park for some bonfire night fun, food will be provided and our bar will be open so make a night of it and bring along your family and friends. More information will be released in due course so watch this space. To book your ticket or for more information please call 01912145588 or email

If you are interested in registering for the Firewalk get in touch with Zoe Hull on 07957 591190 or We will also be having a party for any interested spectators.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for young cancer patients. The charity asked supporters to use their imagination and organise a fundraising event to raise funds for the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day.

Traditionally treated alongside children or elderly patients at the end of their lives, young people can feel extremely isolated during treatment, some never meeting another young person with cancer. Being treated alongside others their own age can make a huge difference to their whole experience. So Teenage Cancer Trust builds specialist units within NHS hospitals bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them. We want every young person with cancer to have access to this specialist support, no matter where they live.
