Pat braves the hot coals
A 78-year-old from Nailsea helped to raise �10,000 for Children’s Hospice South West by braving hot coals.
Pat Keen took part in the firewalk on Weston beach with 50 other daredevils to raise money for the Wraxall-based charity.
Pat said: “I was pleasantly surprised by the walk – it felt like walking on warm grass. I had a fantastic night and I’m so glad we managed to raise so much for the hospice. I would happily do it again.”
Fire throwing ‘poi’ performers, a firework display and live drumming helped to create a beach party atmosphere for the crowd of spectators who had gathered to watch friends and family complete the challenge.
