Ever heard the expression ‘I would walk over hot coals for you’?  Well, that’s exactly what will be happening at Club Batchwood, St Albans on Wednesday, November 16. By walking bare foot over 15ft of hot coals, participants will help raise money to support patients receiving treatment at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre through a difficult time. St Albans Fires Station, White Watch were only too pleased to be part of the launch. Les Jones, station Commander, said: “We would encourage as many people as possible to take part in this fantastic event to raise as much as possible for such a fantastic cause.” Fundraiser, Peter added: “It’s great opportunity for us to stage an event like this and help raise some money for such a great cause as Mount Vernon. I can’t wait to see who comes and braves this.  I’m even going to have a go myself.” Mount Vernon Cancer Centre is the main treatment centre for people in the St Albans and district affected by cancer.   Mount Vernon Cancer Centre Charitable Fund is here to support; from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.  Every penny raised is vital to this.  By taking part you will be supporting a local service helping people with cancer and their families, as well as experiencing a life changing challenge.
