A fire walk completed by 30 people raised an impressive £5,000 for a Hampshire charity. 

The group gathered at The Four Horseshoes in Nursling to raise funds for Abby's Heroes which supports children and families affected by childhood cancer.

The walk involved going barefoot across a bed of scorching hot coals.

Among the brave souls was the general manager of The Four Horseshoes, Adam Khalil, who led by example by being one of the first to step onto the fiery path.

The event drew participants from all walks of life, united by a common goal: to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer and their families.

Daily Echo: Abby's Heroes fire walk

Mr Khalil said: "It's truly heartwarming to see the community come together in such a powerful way to support a cause as important as Abby's Heroes. I'm immensely proud of everyone who took part in the Fire Walk and helped us exceed our fundraising goal. 

“We have the space to hold this sort of event outdoors at The Four Horseshoes and are happy for charities to get in touch to see if we can also support them.”

Sally Randall, from Abby’s Heroes, said: “Our thanks to The Four Horseshoes for hosting our event. The success of this Fire Walk fundraiser serves as a testament to the incredible generosity and solidarity within the local community. Through their collective efforts, the participants have made a tangible difference in the lives of those facing immense challenges, offering hope and support where it is needed most.”

The charity was set up in memory of Abby, who was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer, in 2013 aged 8 years and 10 months.

During her fight, Abby had 23 rounds of chemotherapy, 50 days of radiotherapy, stem cell harvesting, scans, cannulas, drains, intensive care stays and pioneering surgery.

Despite six months in remission, the cancer returned and she passed away on May 29, 2016.
