CIIE Director doing a Fundraising Firewalk

After the roaring success of last November’s fundraising firewalk the University of Edinburgh is hosting a second firewalk in February.

The firewalk has been organised to enable researchers, staff, students and supporters to raise money for a University project that is particularly close to their heart.

All the participants will attend a two hour training session before walking 20 feet over embers burning at approximately 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit / 650 degrees Celsius.

Some of the most eminent professors in the School of Biological Sciences decided to walk across hot coals in aid of the SBS Undergraduate Bursary Fund. The Fund provides assistance to talented students who require that little bit of help to make the most of their education.

The Firewalk will take place on Friday 28th February at 8pm in Teviot House.

SBS Team Members:
Professor David Gray
Professor David Finnegan
Professor Keith Matthews
Dr Anne Payne
Craig Rutherford
