Set yourself the challenge of all challenges! Be empowered to walk across 20 feet (approx. 8 steps) of hot wood embers and give yourself the motivation to take on other things you previously thought impossible. Transform fear into inspiration, if you can do this just think what else you can achieve!
Set in the grounds of the impressive Bodmin Jail, we’re asking you to handle the heat and raise vital funds for Cornwall Hospice Care.
This event is in partnership with Blaze Firewalking and is kindly sponsored by Cornwall Payroll Bureau.
Blaze Firewalking are experts in charity firewalks. No previous training is needed and anyone aged 14 to 114 can take part. Blaze will hold a fun, motivational and mindful session right before the walk to make sure you have a barrier breaking experience.
Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th 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 32 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.
