  • Competitively priced, efficient and professional at all times, Survivorbility Ltd walked that extra mile for our charity, Victim Support. We have made them our preferred supplier for future challenges. CLAUDINE PIGGOTT, Victim Support fire walk organiser London 23/03/10
  • I really enjoyed the firewalk – it was a strangely empowering and moving experience for me. TANIKA GUPTA MBE, Playwrite, Fawcett Society fire walk 4/02/10
  • Survivorbility Ltd create unique events that combine drama, belief, excitement, team spirit and passion, all for a good cause. I’d highly recommend the whole experience, not least for people who need to both fundraise and generate publicity. The recovery-time from my skin-graft was rapid. Only joking! But the other great thing about one of these events is that not only will you raise lots of money – but friends and colleagues will think you’re a hero. Priceless. OONA KING, (MP Bethnal Green & Bow 1997-2005), Head of Diversity Channel 4 Television, Fawcett Society fire walk 4/02/10.
  • Thank you so much for organising such a fun, inspiring and most importantly safe event yesterday afternoon. Everyone who took part felt such a sense of achievement. The seminar beforehand really relaxed everyone and got them to move outside of their comfort zones. In total we raised over £6,200 for Opportunity International! Once again thank you so much for putting the event on. PHILLIP BATE, Lloyds TSB fire walk organiser Bristol 28/01/10
  • The fire walk was superb. Such an amazing experience to organise a surprise event for my friends, and see their faces turn from apprehension and fear to confidence and exhilaration. Everyone enjoyed the event immensely. Very professional indeed. I found out afterwards that 4 people were very much against participating when I announced we were all doing a fire walk, but they were all chuffed with themselves after they did it. I set out to shock, thrill and inspire my friends on my birthday and you helped me achieve that. I think what Survivorbility does is fantastic and of great value on many levels. A big thank you again to your whole team who made things run so smoothly.HELEN GREEN, Dockmasters House, Canary Wharf, London, fire walk 16/01/10

  • I have done a few mad things in my life all in the name of 'raising money for charity' , walking 5 days across a desert, running several full & 1/2 marathons but the 'Fire Walk' for me was one of the most rewarding and FUN to take part of. HEATHER MCKINNEY,Eastwood Park, Falfield, Glos 20/7/08.
  • I thought the company were very well organised and efficient. I found Martin very easy to understand and very motivational. I was petrified and really didnt think i would do it but he convinced me to believe in myself and not be afraid. It was the best thing (aside from having my children) that i have ever done. Alot less painful than having children too!! MICHELLE GALLIOT, Eastwood Park, Falfield, Glos 20/7/08
  • I feel "enhanced"! The seminar was a compelling mix of wisdom and humour, and I felt 100% safe at all times. I felt able to turn my worries into useable adrenalin – that is I converted fear into excitement at the prospect of doing something apparently dangerous. I have felt like an upgraded version of my previous self ever since, because I realise I could do this in any future situation! I feel especially proud of my second fire walk! BRIONY ELSBURY, Eastwood Park,Falfield,Glos 20/7/08
  • “I had a Fab evening, it wasn't what I expected at all, it was much “Better!!" I was gob smacked at how easily I got on the hot embers and just did it ( 5 times!!), I was not in the slightest bit nervous. When asked by friends and family to describe how it felt and if it was hot, the only way I could describe it was by saying it felt like I was walking on meringue and it was not hot at all, a very strange sensation! I would definitely do it again without any doubt in my mind at all. Thanks for a great night”. – RACHEL MALCOLM, Mitchells + Butlers PLC, BARNARDO'S fire walk 17/04/08
  • “Oh le oh le oh le oh le feeling hot hot hot!! (Theme tune of the night!!) Ace!!! Great laugh from the start til the finish! Grab your mates, grab some guts and Firewalk!! – CARLIE MAPP, Mitchells + Butlers PLC, BARNARDO'S fire walk 17/04/08
  • I've had a fantastic response from the participants, with some raising £400 from sponsorship alone! This will help ensure that we will continue reaching people affected by cancer, I can not thank the guys enough, as the event was excellent and I have already recommended Survivorbility Ltd to my colleagues at Macmillan Cancer Support expressing that it's such a brilliant fundraiser, and the media coverage was great! GEMMA DIXON, MACMILLIAN CANCER SUPPORT Fundraising Manager Lincolnshire, 19/04/08
  • 'I recently carried out a workshop/event where one of the objectives included taking staff out of their comfort zones. In nervously choosing firewalking as an accompanying activity I was delighted to find that the 'Survivorbility' team surpassed my expectations in all areas. Not only was the firewalking performed in a safe, yet daring, environment, the instruction was excellent and motivational in many ways. Already I have recommended 'Survivorbility' to a number of my business friends and would urge anyone researching for facilitators for this type of event to stop and utilise this Company as you will not be disappointed.'

  • A truly spectacular event. The fire team were very professional and everyone felt confident and safe. The seminar was the most interesting and inspiring part. As event organiser I had clear instructions as to what was required before the event and so little to do at the event that I was able to walk the fire. Plus – able to dance the night away after the event. We had 30 walkers and sponsorship promised is over £5,500. Participants said it was easy to get sponsored for such an unusual and challenging event. This has been our charity's biggest fundraiser …… I would certainly recommend Survivorbility.

Thanks again for a great event. We finally finished celebrating at our house at 3am. Please thank your "fireman" and the team. ANN CLIFFORD, Charity fire walk event organiser 13/10/07
  • Thanks again for last night and for making it all so easy in terms of organising and actually walking on fire! I’ve received great feedback from everyone who took part and from a lot of the spectators. If anyone is short of a fundraising idea in the future I shall certainly be recommending you and your team as the service received has been excellent. SHARON FLOOD, 19/07/07 Bristol charity fire walking event organiser
  • I was nervous at how the delegates at the Harvey World Travel conference would react when they knew they would be experiencing a firewalk for the first time. Once I met with the team from Survivorbility I felt totally ease with the preparation, attention to detail and the team of people he had working with him. The actual plenary session raised unimaginable determination amongst the delegates to break down all sorts of personal and business related barriers. The most unlikely delegates became the most likely. The theme and objective of the conference was brought together superbly as I wanted to illustrate the importance of receiving change positively and challenging your own thinking in order to achieve even better results. The workshop and firewalk was an outstanding success and exceeded my own expectations as well as the expectations of the vast majority of delegates. Mission accomplished and the result is a business which thinks differently and is able to tear down barriers and challenge the status quo.’ NIGEL KING General Manager Harvey World Travel Southern Africa

Superb!!!, motivating and mind blowing! We all had a positive and wonderful time. Everyone I've spoken with was on a high from their achievements and even devil enough to attempt other activity now. What's your next challenge to us and I'll pass it on!!! LINDSEY HALL, Event Organiser, Eastwood Park, Falfield, Glos 20/7/08
I have done a few mad things in my life all in the name of 'raising money for charity' , walking 5 days across a desert, running several full & 1/2 marathons but the 'Fire Walk' for me was one of the most rewarding and FUN to take part of. HEATHER MCKINNEY,Eastwood Park, Falfield, Glos 20/7/08.
i thought the company were very well organised and efficient. I found Martin very easy to understand and very motivational. I was petrified and really didnt think i would do it but he convinced me to believe in myself and not be afraid. It was the best thing (aside from having my children) that i have ever done. Alot less painful than having children too!! MICHELLE GALLIOT, Eastwood Park, Falfield, Glos 20/7/08
I feel "enhanced"! The seminar was a compelling mix of wisdom and humour, and I felt 100% safe at all times. I felt able to turn my worries into useable adrenalin – that is I converted fear into excitement at the prospect of doing something apparently dangerous. I have felt like an upgraded version of my previous self ever since, because I realise I could do this in any future situation! I feel especially proud of my second fire walk! BRIONY ELSBURY, Eastwood Park,Falfield,Glos 20/7/08
“I had a Fab evening, it wasn't what I expected at all, it was much “Better!!" I was gob smacked at how easily I got on the hot embers and just did it ( 5 times!!), I was not in the slightest bit nervous. When asked by friends and family to describe how it felt and if it was hot, the only way I could describe it was by saying it felt like I was walking on meringue and it was not hot at all, a very strange sensation! I would definitely do it again without any doubt in my mind at all. Thanks for a great night”. – RACHEL MALCOLM, Mitchells + Butlers PLC, BARNARDO'S fire walk 17/04/08
“Oh le oh le oh le oh le feeling hot hot hot!! (Theme tune of the night!!) Ace!!! Great laugh from the start til the finish! Grab your mates, grab some guts and Firewalk!! – CARLIE MAPP, Mitchells + Butlers PLC, BARNARDO'S fire walk 17/04/08
“It was a great experience that kept you wanting to do it again and again, so I did and it didn’t hurt at all” – NEIL TERRY, BARNARDO'S HR assistant 17/04/08
I've had a fantastic response from the participants, with some raising £400 from sponsorship alone! This will help ensure that we will continue reaching people affected by cancer, I can not thank Survivorbility enough, as the event was excellent and I have already recommended Survivorbility Ltd to my colleagues at Macmillan Cancer Support expressing that it's such a brilliant fundraiser, and the media coverage was great! GEMMA DIXON, MACMILLIAN CANCER SUPPORT Fundraising Manager Lincolnshire, 19/04/08
'I recently carried out a workshop/event where one of the objectives included taking staff out of their comfort zones. In nervously choosing firewalking as an accompanying activity I was delighted to find that the 'Survivorbility' team surpassed my expectations in all areas. Not only was the firewalking performed in a safe, yet daring, environment, the instruction was excellent and motivational in many ways. Already I have recommended 'Survivorbility' to a number of my business friends and would urge anyone researching for facilitators for this type of event to stop and utilise this Company as you will not be disappointed.' JASON BERRY, Head of Sales, PLATFORM. Corporate Fire Walk, Luton, 24/04/08

The Firewalk was an amazing experience! The motivational talk and humorous approach inspired us all and we were full of positive thoughts and determination. Everyone rose to the challenge and we were surprised how "painless" it was! All in all a totally unforgettable and inspiring evening! We raised £7,000 for the Scottish SPCA. I would recommend the Survivorbility team to anyone planning a charity event….Fabulous!! CAROL DYER, SPCA Charity Fund Raising Co-ordinator. Inverness and Thurso fire walks 4th & 5th April 08

A very big THANK YOU for the totally amazing event the other night, I can say this also on behalf of all the staff ….we were the talk of the town that night and people are still commenting on "the headers from o'dowds"walking on fire today. BRIAN FARREL, Children In Need Event, Newry, NI 16/11/07
Thank you for such a wonderful event I think the best part was your training (the firewalk was a breeze after that)! CHARITHRA THEJOPAL,Senior Corporate Fundraising Executive,Fairbridge. Charity fire walk event organiser 19/11/07
A truly spectacular event. The fire team were very professional and everyone felt confident and safe. The seminar was the most interesting and inspiring part. As event organiser I had clear instructions as to what was required before the event and so little to do at the event that I was able to walk the fire. Plus – able to dance the night away after the event. We had 30 walkers and sponsorship promised is over £5,500. Participants said it was easy to get sponsored for such an unusual and challenging event. This has been our charity's biggest fundraiser …… I would certainly recommend Survivorbility. ANN CLIFFORD, Charity fire walk event organiser 13/10/07
Initial feedback has been excellent, they loved you and thought the experience was totally unique and would love to book you again, They also said they felt incredibly bonded by the experience. Thank you again and I look forward to working with you soon. SHARON BOWLER,Senior Speaker Consultant,Celebrity Speakers Ltd. Corporate Fire Walk, Marrakesh, 11/09/07
feedback so far – great, fantastic, really glad I did it. One of the oldest of the firewalkers said "that was amazing, what are we doing next- I can't wait – Bring it on!!" Thanks again for a great event. We finally finished celebrating at our house at 3am. Please thank your "fireman" and the team. ANN CLIFFORD, Charity fire walk event organiser 13/10/07
Thanks again for last night and for making it all so easy in terms of organising and actually walking on fire! I’ve received great feedback from everyone who took part and from a lot of the spectators. If anyone is short of a fundraising idea in the future I shall certainly be recommending you and your team as the service received has been excellent. SHARON FLOOD, 19/07/07 Bristol charity fire walking event organiser
I was nervous at how the delegates at the Harvey World Travel conference would react when they knew they would be experiencing a firewalk for the first time. Once I met the team they totally put me at my ease with his preparation, attention to detail and the team of people he had working with him. The actual plenary session raised unimaginable determination amongst the delegates to break down all sorts of personal and business related barriers. The most unlikely delegates became the most likely. The theme and objective of the conference was brought together superbly as I wanted to illustrate the importance of receiving change positively and challenging your own thinking in order to achieve even better results. The workshop and firewalk was an outstanding success and exceeded my own expectations as well as the expectations of the vast majority of delegates. Mission accomplished and the result is a business which thinks differently and is able to tear down barriers and challenge the status quo.’ NIGEL KING General Manager Harvey World Travel Southern Africa

A truly momentous and memorable day for all involved. You are a pleasure to do business with and I will certainly be intouch again JILL WINN National Account Manager Royal Caribbean International & Celebrity Cruises (Glass Walk 17/05/07 event organiser )
Thank you for an amazing, enlightening evening. I've had phone calls and texts all morning saying how fantastic the training and fire walking was; both to take part in and to watch, and also how friendly and down to earth you both were. The fact that we've raised £3000 has now become the bonus, and what we've all gained from the event, is in some ways far more important LYN KENWAY – Bodelwyddan, North Wales.(Fire Walk 19/05/07 event organiser)
