Walking across hot coals might sound daunting to most, but a Norwich firewalker is hosting an open firewalk to offer charities an opportunity to raise money.
Tosin 'Firewalker' Ogunnusi, head of motivational training and performance improvement at Think! Training and Consultancy, will hold the firewalk on March 26 at The Forum.
Those brave enough will walk barefoot across a 15 feet bed of burning hot coals reaching temperatures of 1500 degrees.
Mr Ogunnusi believes facing the coals can help people make changes in other areas of their lives.
He said said: 'The quickest way to overcome ones fear is by associating it to an activity that they feel they can't do.
You may also want to watch:
'By doing that activity it really frees their mind up to other possibilities.'
Staff, committee members and parents from Drayton Village Pre School have already signed up to the challenge. Other charities and individuals are encouraged to get involved.

Louise Harris, director of performance at Think! and chair of the pre school, said: 'Once people walk barefoot over hot coals, it can be totally life changing. It is also a great way to raise money for charity.
'We will all be raising money for our local pre school. Other people are welcome to join in and raise money for other charities or just do it for their personal achievement!'
The firewalk takes place at around 8.30pm. Participants need to register at 6pm inside The Forum.
