Firewalk 2012

Team photo


Well we did it! 10 of us walked across 400 degree heat barefoot for brain tumours! Thank you to everyone who supported us and donated.


Thanks for visiting our Team Firewalk 2012 fundraising page.

On Saturday 17th November 2012, we will be taking part in a Firewalk, raising money for Taylan's Project / Brain Tumour Research and we want to raise as much money as possible towards this worthwhile cause.

Taylan was the beautiful son of Figen and Andy Rawlinson. He passed away in August 2009, aged just 7 after battling with a brain tumour for 10 months and is the inspiration behind Taylan’s Project.

Taylan's Project was founded in January 2010, to commemorate Taylan's short and happy life and continue, with his legacy, to help others. As an umbrella group part of Brain Tumour Research, its aim is to raise awareness and much needed funds in order to help find a cure for this devastating illness.

More children and people under the age of 40 die of a brain tumour than from any other form of cancer. With more than 120 different types of tumours requiring different types of treatments, brain tumours are a notoriously difficult disease to diagnose and treat.

The fact that research into the cause of brain tumours is underfunded is heartbreaking and the progress is unfortunately very slow, with just 14% of sufferers surviving beyond five years (compared to over 50% for all other cancers). Brain tumours can occur in anyone but are increasingly affecting the younger population and we need your help.

This event is, as its name suggests, a bare foot walk over red-hot embers. No tricks, no special effects, just the team and the fire!

The team are all putting their feet on the line in the hope that people will give generously towards a very worthwhile charity.

The event will take place at The Courtyard, Claydon House, Middle Claydon, Buckinghamshire, MK18 2EX at 4.45pm. Please come along and support us. Further details can be found on

Thank you in advance for all donations made.

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 28%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.

So please dig deep and donate now.
