Local Hospice Care charity Phyllis Tuckwell is challenging people to go barefoot and brave for its newest fundraising event – the Glasswalk.
Held at the Rotunda in Guildford on Saturday 24th February, this is set to be the ultimate challenge for those who want to put themselves to the test – walking across broken glass to raise money for Phyllis Tuckwell.
The Glasswalk will be 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 will attend a training seminar run by T4C instructor Cliff Mann, where they will learn skills and attitudes that will stay with them for life. They’ll leave the seminar calm, focused and ready to face this unnerving challenge.
All of the money raised will go towards funding the supportive and end of life care which Phyllis Tuckwell provides for patients and families who are living with a terminal illness such as cancer. Every day it 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.
Registration is £30 with a requested minimum sponsorship of £150. To secure your place or find out more about this intriguing challenge, visit www.pth.org.uk, email
