Barnstaple Director's Firewalk Raises £1,000 For Charity
20 Nov 2013

Linden Homes’ commercial director, Jason Knight, who lives in Barnstaple, has raised £1,000 for Children’s Hospice South West by walking on hot coals!

Jason braved the five metre firewalk, where the average temperature of the embers is 800 degrees celsius, at the charity’s Little Bridge House hospice near Barnstaple, Devon.

Commenting on his experience, Jason said: “The firewalk was amazing, I managed to convince my wife to take part too and I’m thrilled at how much money we raised. It was really interesting to visit Little Bridge House and see the valuable work that they do.”

Children’s Hospice South West, Linden Homes South West’s charity of the year has three hospices near St Austell, Barnstaple and Bristol. The hospices are open to families with children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and help to build precious memories and offer much-needed support.

Naomi Dymond, corporate partnerships fundraiser for Children’s Hospice South West said: “It seems odd that people are choosing to line up to walk on hot coals but it just goes to show how much the charity touches people’s hearts and inspires them to raise money. We’re delighted that Jason and his wife not only braved the firewalk but collected £1,000 for Children’s Hospice South West – an amazing total.”
