Crest Nicholson supports local charity in Welwyn Garden City with Firewalk Challenge

Housebuilder, Crest Nicholson, has donated £1,000 to local Welwyn Garden City charity, Isabel Hospice in support of its annual Firewalk challenge taking place later in the year. Crest Nicholson’s donation will go towards supporting the vital work of the hospice which provides free palliative care and support for patients and their families living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses throughout eastern Hertfordshire.


The fundraising event which will takes place at Sherradswood School in Welwyn invites 35 ‘brave soles’ to take up the ultimate test of mind over matter challenge, walking across hot coals of up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. The fearless firewalkers that register to take up the challenge will receive full training from “Blaze” Firewalk experts and a certificate once they cross over the fiery finish line.


Alice Thompson, Marketing Co-Ordinator at Crest Nicholson Chiltern commented: “A few years ago my cousin was sadly diagnosed with Breast Cancer. She was looked after by Isabel Hospice, so for me the charity is very close to my heart. They do a tremendous job, and I can say from a personal level that the support they offer both the patients, and their families is second to none. We are delighted to be able to support the hospice and its important work through its upcoming Firewalk Challenge and we wish good luck to all the brave participants!”


Cheryl Cusack Community Fundraiser from Isabel Hospice commented: ““We are delighted that Crest Nicolson have chosen us as their local charity. Their new homes at Willow Place in Welwyn Garden City will bring more residents into our community and their donation will help us continue to care for our patients and their families.”


Crest Nicholson’s nearby Willow Place development in Welwyn Garden City is launching in Spring 2021 and will comprise a traditional collection of two, three and four bedroom houses. For more information or to register your interest in the development call 01707 862584 or visit
