Walk Through Fire in 2020
Monday 16th December 2019
Start 2020 by doing something incredible and walk on fire for St. Vincent’s Hospice. The Firewalk for St. Vincent’s Hospice returns on Wednesday 5 February 2020 and is open for registration.
Working with Headstrong Scotland, this is your chance take part in a truly one of a kind experience and raise vital funds for the local charity to kick start your New Year with a bang.
Fundraising Manager for St. Vincent’s Hospice, Carol-Anne Lamont, said: “It is no exaggeration to say that there is nothing quite like the Firewalk. Facing down scalding hot coals, reaching temperatures of more than 800 degrees, you will learn how to face your fears, overcome emotion and tap into reserves of confidence and self-belief that you wouldn’t believe possible.
“Last year we were lucky enough to have people from all ages and stages in life coming out to take part in our Firewalk, and every single one of them has told us that the feeling of accomplishment was absolutely incredible. Not only that, but you’ll be doing something incredible by raising vital funds for St. Vincent’s, which will go directly towards supporting people in our community who need it most.”
St. Vincent’s is a specialist provider of palliative and hospice care for people and families affected by life limiting conditions throughout Renfrewshire. Taking pride in offering the right care, at the right time, they offer support via their In-patient Unit, Day Services and in people’s own homes throughout the community.
They are also one of the few organisations in Renfrewshire to offer bereavement counselling and support for children and young people who have experienced the loss of a parent or loved one.
Jamie McKenzie, from Headstrong Scotland, said: “We are very excited to be teaming up with St. Vincent’s to put on this Fire walking event. Not only will this help raise vital funds for the Hospice, and help so many people going through difficult times, but it is your chance to take part in an ancient ritual and rite of passage that is a truly unique experience.
“During the evening, you will learn how to conquer fear and how your minds can be turned to confidence and certainty, in any situation, focus on the future and your goals, rediscover your own inner power and use these new found skills to walk over hot coals.”
The event begins at 6pm at St. Vincent’s Hospice and costs £25 to take part. For more information, contact Info@svh.co.uk or visit https://events.svh.co.uk/e/19/svhfirewalk
