This coming Sunday evening, a special event will be held in Millennium Square in Sheffield. It has been organised by The Stroke Association and its principal aim is to raise money for that praiseworthy organisation's work. What is it it? It's a firewalk over burning embers and participants are asked to achieve as much sponsorship as they can muster.

Don't worry, the writer of this request wouldn't be brave enough to even consider such a challenge. However, a fellow Yorkshire blogger has signed up for the firewalk. Her name is Elizabeth and if you can spare a fiver, ten pounds or more it would be excellent if you could sponsor her. I am proud to have regular blog visitors from America, NZ and Australia but I must confess I am not sure about the feasibility of sponsorship from overseas. Perhaps you could try it via the link at the bottom of this post and see.
For Elizabeth, the firewalk isn't just about raising money for The Stroke Association, it's also about fulfilling a long held spiritual ambition and perhaps more importantly reaching a milestone in her personal recovery from a debilitating fall some four years back. That fall caused a brain injury which Elizabeth has been battling to overcome. It has been a long and difficult road back.

So come on folks! Please support Elizabeth on her firewalk by sponsoring her. Every little helps. Go to:- http://www.justgiving.com/Elizabeth-Stanforth-Sharpe


  1. Don't worry about feasibility! where there are credit cards, national frontiers fall away ...

  2. PayPal worked just dandy for this Californian, who hasn't a clue how much a pound is worth. Thank you for passing on the opportunity to participate. I have a pair of diabetic shoes I wouldn't mind having burnt, if she decides not to go barefoot.

  3. God's promise to Elizabeth:

    When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. (Isaiah 43:2, KJV)

  4. Elizabeth.5:26 pm

    Thank you, YP, it was incredibly kind of you to post this and I appreciate your support and friendship. x
