Due to high demand we are delighted to bring back the Cornwall Hospice Care Fire Walk but new for 2019, the added element of an Ice (broken glass) Walk. Be empowered to walk safely across 20 feet (approx. 8 steps) of broken glass, and after dark, take on the same distance of hot wood embers.
Transform fear into inspiration, if you can do this just think what else you can achieve! The choice is yours to take on one or both of these adrenaline fuelled events.
No previous training is needed and anyone aged 14 to 114 can take part. But, not sure what to expect? See last year’s walkers make their way across the hot embers.
Also, see what are Walkers in last year’s Fire Walk had to say here.
Blaze Firewalking are experts in charity firewalks. Blaze will hold a fun, motivational and mindful session right before the walk to make sure you have a barrier breaking experience.
Sponsored by Cornwall Payroll Bureau, the glass walk will take place at Polkyth Leisure Centre, St Austell and the Fire Walk at the tennis courts in Poltair Park near to the Leisure Centre.
Every year it costs over £5.15 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 19% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 69 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 10th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 30+ shops.
£56 could pay for three hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.
£37 could pay for one Lymphoedema appointment to ease swelling and symptoms for someone with cancer.
£23 could pay for an hour with our bereavement counsellor, supporting families through the loss of a loved one.
