Around 20 people braved the hot coals in aid of the local children's cancer charity
A fire walk ignited the interest of people from Farnborough and far beyond as they turned out to take part in the challenge for a cancer charity.
This was the second such event to be held at The Cricket Club, next to the Crown and Cushion Pub in Minley Road, and raised around £300 for Christopher's Smile.
The charity was set up by Lightwater parents Karen and Kevin Capel, whose son Christopher died from cancer nine days before his sixth birthday in June 2008.
The event last Saturday September 21 was organised by Fiaz Mir, who held a fire walk in 2010 and plans to run another next September to coincide with the Minley Triathlon. Participants in the unusual fundraiser prepared for the fire walk by chopping wooden boards with their hands and bending metal rods using only the softest part of their throats.
Professional life coach Dan Storey, who led the session, pledged to be a 'devil on the shoulder' of those present to first convince them of the danger of the activities before encouraging them to overcome their fears to succeed.
"The fire walk isn't just about tonight," he said. "It is the first step towards breaking barriers between you and success now and in the future."
Around 20 people completed the fire walk, including News & Mail reporter Pete Bryant. Read all about Pete's experience in this week's paper, out on Thursday September 26.
