The RPS team have accepted this fiery challenge and will be taking part in a sponsored firewalk on Saturday the 11th of November 2017 at the Oxford Rugby Club to help raise funds for the charity SeeSaw.
Walking on fire has existed in some shape or form for several thousand years and is found right across the globe. Often used as rite of passage or ritual of commitment it is the ultimate test of faith. Firewalking shows us the vastness of our own human potential, shifting the energy of fear into the energy of growth. The bed of fire is usually between 8 and 12 feet in length, and the temperature of the embers can reach 1200o Fahrenheit.
SeeSaw was founded in 2000 when it was recognised that children as well as adults grieve the loss of a loved one and could benefit from specialist support. It provides support for individuals when a parent or sibling has died, including one-to-one sessions with support workers.
SeeSaw is also involved with over 85% of the schools in Oxfordshire where students have experienced the sudden death of a pupil or teacher.
It is the first time RPS has chosen to work with a dedicated charity and is long overdue according to Managing Director Simon Ayris. “It’s something we know we should have been doing for a while but you get bogged down in the day-to-day running of the business,” Simon explains. “But after hearing about SeeSaw and the amazing work they do, I knew it was the perfect fit for us.”
