FUNDRAISERS dared to walk on fire and raised more than £6,000 for Tenovus Cancer Care.

A total of 32 people took part in the rare opportunity, held at Porth Eirias Waterfront Complex in Colwyn Bay on Thursday, September 5.

After some words of wisdom from an expert trainer, participants were able to walk across 15-20ft of red-hot embers.

Debbie Rowley, community fundraiser for Tenovus Cancer Care - who also took part in the challenge - said: “My belly was flipping. It was awesome. The trainer was absolutely brilliant at his job.

“He started off with some techniques, such as how to steady your breathing, before heading over to the coals. We then all lined up and adrenaline gets you over.

“Fundraisers had a £80 target. We are delighted to have raised what we have.”

Instructor Cliff Mann and the team at Time 4 Change delivered the event and guided the charity fire walkers.

During the evening, a spectacular fire eating and breathing performance was given by Inferno; the circus performers carried out a range of tricks with fire. Llandudno Sing with Us choir also sang.

Debbie added: “The Porth Eirias staff were fab.

“We all had friends, family and work colleagues in the audience. They were brilliant, cheering everyone on.”
