Teaming up with FireWalk Scotland, the Hospice are looking for people to sign up and face their fears, for this exciting challenge to support St. Vincent’s by doing something truly remarkable.

Commenting on the event, Fundraiser for St. Vincent’s Hospice, Linda Campbell, said: “Our 30th Anniversary year has been nothing short of spectacular, with some absolutely incredible events and support from people all across our Community. It only seems fitting that we close our 30th year in the same way, with this very special event, giving you the chance to do something you’d never think possible and literally walk through fire to raise money for a good cause.”

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 FireWalk 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, at temperatures of more than 800 degrees Celsius.”

The event begins at 6pm at St. Vincent’s Hospice and costs £37.90 to take part. For more information, contact Info@svh.co.uk.
