Crowds Cheer for Phyllis Glasswalkers

Crowds Cheer for Phyllis Glasswalkers

Crowds of shoppers gathered at the Rotunda in Guildford last weekend, to cheer on nine brave fundraisers who took on Phyllis Tuckwell’s latest challenge, walking barefoot over a 10ft bed of broken glass to raise money for the local Hospice Care charity.

The Glasswalk took place on Saturday 24th February and is the latest in a range of challenge events which Phyllis Tuckwell has organised. It was run by Time4Change (T4C), a training and events organisation which draws upon motivational psychology, neuro-linguistic programming and the martial arts to tap into inner resources of fearlessness and self-belief. Immediately before the walk, participants attended a training seminar run by T4C instructor Cliff Mann, where they learnt techniques to boost their self-confidence and calm their anxieties. By conquering the fear of walking over glass, they learnt to conquer other fears that they may face in life, and to take that all-important first step not only in the Glasswalk but in anything which they find challenging.

“We would like to thank all of our amazing fundraisers who took part in this daunting challenge, and proved to themselves and everyone there that they can do anything they put their mind to!” said Fiona Chapman, Events Fundraiser at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care. “All of the money they have raised will go towards funding the supportive and end of life care which we offer patients and families who are living with an advanced or terminal illness, such as cancer.”

Every day Phyllis Tuckwell supports over 250 patients, relatives and carers – in their own homes, in the community, at the Hospice in Farnham and at the Beacon Centre in Guildford – through medical and nursing care, therapies, counselling, social work advice and practical support. However, as the NHS/Government only covers 20% of its costs, it has to raise over £20,000 a day to do this.
