On Saturday 14 November, the DIG attraction, St Saviourgate’s, York, will be transformed to host The Glasswalk, a challenge where participants are sponsored to walk on broken glass in aid of Yorkshire’s children cancer charity Candlelighters.

Anne Bagshaw, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, event sponsor, comments “As a homebuilder with a commitment to supporting causes in the Yorkshire region, it is a privilege and a pleasure to support Candlelighters, a charity that works so hard to bring joy to families facing extraordinary circumstances.

“Working with local communities is something that we pride ourselves on, and we hope to continue our partnership with Candlelighters for many years to come. The Glasswalk is a unique and daring way to raise money and awareness for the charity and we can’t wait to go barefoot and do the almost-impossible task of walking on glass. Good luck to everyone taking part!”

Noemie Salvaudon, event fundraiser at Candlelighters, says “The Glasswalk is Team Candlelighters next big challenge, and the last one in 2015. We wanted to finish the year with a big bang – or a big crunch! The main event is of course walking on broken glass; we will also be looking after the spectators by offering them a free tour of the attraction.”

We would also like to thank Swink Design for the beautiful artwork they created for the event.
