Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Pil­grims Hos­pices’ first fire­walk raised an in­cred­i­ble £50,000.

It was staged at Hol­i­day Ex­tras, Ash­ford Road, New­ingreen, near Hythe back in March.

Pil­grims has thanked all the fire­walk­ers who hot-footed across the red-hot coals and their friends and fam­ily who came along to sup­port them.

Robert Grew, event fundraiser for Pil­grims Hos­pices said: “All those in­volved de­served to feel very proud, not only did they con­quer the most pri­mal of fears, but to­gether, the money they raised will pay for more than 2,500 hours of nurs­ing care.”

More fire­walks will be held next March
