Martletts Firewalk

The last spaces are available for individuals or group entries to take on the Firewalk challenge that will be happening at dusk at The Venue, Western Esplanade, Kingsway in Hove on Saturday February 9.

The Firewalk costs £20 to register and Martlets is asking that entrants raise a minimum of £100 for the hospice to take part. All funds raised will go towards helping Martlets provide care to local people living with terminal illness allowing them hope, purpose and possibility.

Clem Hunnisett from Martlets Fundraising Team said, “It’s so easy to sign up to do something extraordinary and put yourself to the test while raising much needed funds for Martlets. It’s the final call for people brave enough to take on the Firewalk! Come alone or challenge friends, family or work colleagues to join you for what promises to be an unforgettable experience.”

Martlets is a charity that cares for people living through a terminal illness in and around Brighton and Hove. It’s much more than a hospice and is working to change perceptions of hospice care.

Today, most patients receive care in their own home. The hospice in Hove is a place where patients and their families can use the therapeutic services, drop-in clinics, visit the in-patient unit or just sit and have a coffee in the café.

The hospice’s community teams care for people living and dying at home. Families and loved ones are supported into bereavement. Martlets runs a 24/7 helpline for free, personal support.

Martlets’ care is only free thanks to the generosity of local people; every donation will help them change lives.
