5:00pm Friday 1st March 2013 in News
THE Dean of Blackburn is to bare his soles to intense heat to raise money for the town’s young people.
The Very Rev Christoper Armstrong is preparing to walk over hot coals in a fundraising bid for Blackburn Youth Zone.
Rev Armstrong said it was an honour to undertake the feat with other fundraisers at the youth zone on Wednesday.
He said: “It is very imaginative and I think it is quite appropriate for a dean to walk over hot coals during lent. The youth zone and those who support it are so inspiring and do so much for the town it is a privilege to help their fundraising efforts in any way I can.”
The Fire Walk takes place at Blackburn Youth Zone at 7pm on Wednesday. To take part or support the fundraisers contact the youth zone at their Jubilee Street base or call 01254 292000.
