Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) is bringing a Firewalk to Cabot Circus in Bristol on Wednesday 20 November and is inviting brave individuals to take on the challenge.
The Firewalk will give people the chance to push their boundaries and walk along a path of hot coals at temperatures of 1200˚F. Sponsorship raised by participants will go towards helping CHSW support over 220 families in the area whose children have been diagnosed with life-limiting conditions.
CHSW’s Charlton Farm hospice, just outside of Bristol, provides short breaks, respite and emergency stays for the whole family, as well as end of life care and bereavement support.
For Lisa and her family from Bristol, Charlton Farm has provided a much-needed break from the day to day routine of caring for her son Ethan who has a very rare condition, Ring Chromosome 14.
She explains, “We first looked around Charlton Farm before the build had been completed in 2007. I must admit, I thought a children’s hospice was a place where children went to die. I had no idea it would be a place we would come and have so much fun and make wonderful memories. I cannot thank the hospice enough; I do not want to think where we would be a as family unit without this service.”
Taking part in the Firewalk is a fantastic way to get involved in raising funds for CHSW, enabling them to continue to provide the highest standards of care to families.
