Time is running out for those who want to take part in a sizzling charity challenge this weekend.

Town mayor Jeff Trail and Spoken landlord George Nightingale will be among those taking part in the Deaf Academy’s Santa Sizzle fire walk in The Strand on Saturday (December 1).

The event, which involves walking across hot coals which can reach temperatures of 1200 degrees centigrade, is being held as part of The Deaf Academy’s bid to raise the last £250,000 for a new state-of-the-art facility in Exmouth.

Those taking part can do so in two ways – pay the £15 entry fee and raise at least £50 in sponsorship, or pay a one-off fee of £50.

Booking will be accepted on the day up to 4.30pm subject to availability.

A seminar will be held prior to the event by two-time Guinness World Record holder Scott Bell.
