Businesses, groups and individuals are being invited to join in with three new challenges launched by Lewis-Manning Hospice Care for 2021.

How do you fancy a fire walk, Jurassic Coast trek or a wing walk?

Or, perhaps, even all three?

Tom Goodinge, Director of Fundraising, pictured left, said: “We’ve had lots of people asking how they can show their support for us this year.

“We decided that we wanted to introduce some fundraising opportunities with a difference.

“The past year has been tough for everyone and we aim for our events to bring some much-needed fun, excitement and socialising to peoples’ lives, as well as creating some memorable experiences.

“Everyone can get involved with our challenge events from businesses that are looking to develop team building activities, which are needed now more than ever, or friends and family simply wanting to enjoy an adventure together.

“The fire walk is challenging individuals to ‘face their fears’ and walk barefoot over a bed of red-hot embers.

“Training will be given from experts and with an enthusiastic crowd willing everyone on, it’s perfectly safe and is open to all ages (minimum age 12) and abilities.

“Taking place on Bournemouth beach on September 17 at 6.30pm, we suggest bringing your friends and family along to cheer you along and watch you put your bravery to the test.

“The opportunity to take to the skies and wing walk on a biplane takes place on selected dates throughout the year, from Compton Abbas Airfield.

“You could be soaring over Dorset and Wiltshire and able to see the stunning scenery from a very unique view!

“If you don’t want to take to the skies alone you can always get a team or group together to enjoy a fun day out and share the amazing experience together.

“The Jurassic Coast Trek will take place on October 8 to 10.

“It’s a two-day trek along the Jurassic Coast, with the opportunity to potentially spot wildlife such as dolphins, sea birds and butterflies, whilst enjoying the spectacular cliff top scenery.

“If you would like to learn more, and to register, please visit our website lewis-manning.org.uk/challenges/
