Hospice managers to walk over hot coals

Managers at Longfield Community Hospice will show their commitment to patients, families and carers by taking part in their first ever firewalk next week.

The hospice's senior management team will brave the hot coals at the Minchinhampton hospice on October 1 at 6pm.

Rachel Jones, head of fundraising and marketing, said: "I asked fellow senior managers if they would be prepared to walk over hot coals for the hospice and the answer was a resounding yes!

"We are all committed to raising as much money as possible for the hospice, especially at a time when fundraising income continues to be compromised, due to Covid. None of us have done a firewalk before, so we're a little apprehensive, but we're determined to take on the challenge."

They will be joining over 20 other brave 'soles', who have signed up to do the firewalk to raise vital funds to continue the free care and support offered by the hospice across Gloucestershire.
