BRAVE volunteers are being encouraged to take part in a firewalk challenge at Edinburgh Zoo to raise money for specialist veterinary equipment.

The firewalk challenge will be held at the zoo next month, and all participants will be walking across 20 feet of burning embers.

Hugh Roberts, zoo chief executive, said: “A number of our veterinary team and staff will take part. The money raised will go towards buying specialised equipment for our veterinary team, including a small animal ventilator, ECG machine and a flexible gastroscope.”
