Care team member to walk over hot coals for charity


A member of the Care Team at the local children’s hospice is going out of their comfort zone by braving a Firewalk for the charity.

Sarah Turnbull from Worle will face the challenge of walking bare foot over hot coals at temperatures of 1200˚F.

Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) is bringing the Firewalk to The Galleries in Bristol on Thursday 11 November and hoping to raise funds from the event which will go towards supporting local families at its Charlton Farm hospice in Wraxall. 

Sarah has been Bank staff at the hospice for over 5 years and has recently become a permanent member of the Sibling Support team. She said: “I am taking part because as a member of the Siblings team at Charlton Farm, I see first-hand the importance of the support given to our families as a whole unit. I am also hugely privileged to be a part of such a fantastic team and endeavor to give back in any way I can. Taking on this challenge gives me that opportunity.”

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.

“I am humbled by the generosity of friends and family who have sponsored me, and they know, as I do, that the funds raised will be used to help CHSW continue to make a difference to so many of our siblings, especially during such testing times,” added Sarah.

Tickets are still available at £30 each, which includes free parking at The Galleries on the evening and a t-shirt to show you braved the walk.
