COURAGEOUS people walked over hot coals in aid of a charity for those living with terminal illnesses, raising hundreds in the process.

Organised by the Flintshire Marie Curie Fundraising Group, walkers took on the challenge of travelling bare foot across hot coals – and all made it across to tell the tale afterwards!

Hundreds of pounds were raised for Marie Curie by the brave people that took part in a sponsored fire walk at Mold Rugby Club on Saturday night, January 11.

Laura Ellis-Bartlett, community fundraiser for Marie Curie told the Leader how the night was a big success after conquering the coals herself.

She said: “We had a great day at the Mold Rugby Club. There was such a buzz about the day and in the run up to the fire walk. We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came along to support the event and a special thanks to Helen, Sue and the team at Mold Rugby Club for all of their help in organising this event."

In total, 13 people conquered the coals including mayor of Mold Tim Maunders and Cllr Carolyn Thomas.

The Leader previously reported how the deputy council leader would be taking part in the fundraiser.

Ahead of the walk, she said: “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.”
