ST Clare Hospice in Hastingwood will welcome one of its six Directors to face the heat at the charity’s annual Autumn Firewalk event on Sunday 28th October 2018.


Cheryl Armitage, Director of Income Generation at St Clare Hospice, will brave a 3-metre barefoot walk over red-hot wood embers, smouldering at over 800°F, to raise vital funds for the charity.


Cheryl will join up to forty other fierce firewalkers this October, as she supports St Clare to reach its fundraising target of a scorching £10,000.


Commenting on the approaching challenge, Cheryl Armitage said: “I am both nervous and excited to take on this fiery fundraiser in aid of St Clare! Braving a Firewalk is one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities that you simply can’t miss, and I know that this experience of conquering my fear will stay with me forever.”


Explaining why she is taking on St Clare’s Firewalk challenge, Cheryl said: “I’m braving the heat because I know what a difference raising vital funding makes to the Hospice. The Income Generation team work tirelessly to raise over £2.5million each year for St Clare, always going the extra mile to ensure that we are hitting our targets so the Hospice can offer its vital care and support in the community. Taking on the Firewalk is my way of leading by example, putting my best foot forward (into the flaming fire!) for the hospice I love.”


The St Clare Firewalk will be hosted at St Clare Hospice, Hastingwood Road, CM17 9JX. Registration is £25 per person and we ask participants to pledge to raise a minimum of £150 in sponsorship. The event is open to all ages, but under 18s must have signed parental permission to walk. Places are limited to forty people.
