TV personality and pop star Michelle Heaton will put bravery to the test when she walks on fire to raise money for a children’s hospice.

The former Liberty X star will be walking across hot coals that can be more than 600 degrees celsius.

Ms Heaton will be fundraising for Haven House Children’s Hospice, in its grounds in High Road, Woodford Green, tonight.

The fiery fundraiser is back for the second time in a year – in March model Casey Bachelor braved the coals.

Haven House chief executive Mike Palfreman said: “We are delighted that Michelle Heaton will be taking part in our firewalk on Friday.

“Our second firewalk promises to be even bigger than the first.

“This event is perfect for thrill seekers, daring fundraisers or a massive challenge for those afraid of fire. It’s also a great “no train” event, as you just turn up on the night.

“Afterwards there will be a BBQ, refreshments, and a brilliant firework display to enjoy in the grounds of our neighbours, Woodford Rugby Club.

“It promises to be a spectacular evening and we hope our firewalk will raise a fantastic amount for local life-limited children and their families.”

To sign up for our firewalk and for more details about the firework display please visit havenhouse.org.uk/firewalk2016 or call 020 8506 363.
