Sharon fire walks her way to raising £700 for her son's specialist trike
Kimpton mum Sharon Kennedy raised £700 to help buy a specialist trike for her young son Cameron after taking part in a fire walk, walking over coals of up to 1200 degrees Celsius.
Sharon took part in the event run by mindset mentoring firm Bigger Brighter Bolder in Newbury on Halloween after considering various fundraising events. She will now be able to buy a Tomcat Trike to help her son who suffers with sensory processing difficulties, social communication difficulties and Dyspraxia thanks to her fundraising and a grant from Cerebra, a specialist charity that helps children with neurological problems.
Sharon said: “We’d like to say thank you to everyone who sponsored me. We have been brought to tears by the generosity of everyone including total strangers have given us large donations.
“The fire walk itself was an amazing event and I’d like to thank George Swift who ran the workshop and Tracey Miller for all of their help.”
Tracey Miller, BBB director added: “Sharon was amazing. She threw herself into the whole event and I know got a lot from learning about about the power of her mind. She did a great job of the fire walk itself.”
