A FLINTSHIRE councillor will conquer the coals for an 'extraordinary' cause.

Cllr Carolyn Thomas will be taking part in the sponsored fire-walk this weekend at Mold Rugby Club in a bid to raise funds for Marie Curie.

She told the Leader: "It is a wonderful charity that brings support, love and care to people what can be the most distressing of times.

"Marie Curie Nurses care for people living with a terminal illness in their own homes and provide vital support to families and carers.

"The charity would not exist without the kind donations of people and we keep needing to raising money to enable them to continue locally.

"I was invited to take on the challenge by the Flintshire Fundraising Group Chairwoman Nicki Kenealy, who also works for the Flintshire County Council social services, after hearing about the extraordinary work the nurses do bringing relief during desperate times, it would be great if you could help me raise money by donating to this great charity."

The event will be held at Mold Rugby Club on January 11 at 6pm.
