Looe Fire Walk
Thank you to all you made the mission impossible, possible
Over thirty volunteers were sponsored to take part in the Looe Fire Walk. Donations have still to be checked but it’s estimated that nearly £4,000 was raised. Leading the way in Looe was the Mayor Armand Toms, who delivered prizes after the walk for the best dressed in an Hawaiian outfit, best team spirit, most money raised from an individual and the loudest scream!! Huge thanks to the organising committee, the Mayor, Michelle and Dom Saddler from the Old Sail Loft Restaurant, Tina and Claire from the Harbour Commissioners, Carys and Tanya from Looe Music Festival. Thanks to Neil who provided all the walkers Tshirts free of charge. A wonderful community, incredible atmosphere, a night to remember.
Are you Fisherman enough or is it mission impossible?
The Fishermen’s Mission launches the Looe Fire walk and challenges you to take part.
Conquer the coals and walk across 20 feet of embers burning at 1236 degrees Fahrenheit without experiencing any pain or injury all whilst raising money for charity.
Taking place in Looe Harbour, Cornwall on 13th April 2017 the money raised will help The Fisherman’s Mission continue to provide emergency help and welfare to active and retired fishermen and their families.
You’ll get full training and there will be stalls, music and street food and a fully licensed bar to entertain your supporters whilst you psych yourself up for the main event.
Think you’re Fisherman enough? Sign up today and get your friends to join you too.
The fundraising event has been organised in conjunction with Looe Harbour Commissioners, The Old Sail Loft and Looe Music Festival.

Everywhere is the venue, everybody’s welcome to the party. And every year, we try to push it one step further.
