A village pub’s patrons were playing with fire when they raised more than £2,000 for a cancer charity.
The Therfield residents, customers of the Fox and Duck pub in the village, took part in a charity fire walk on the village green on Sunday evening.
Landlord of the Fox and Duck, Ivan Titmuss, took part in the challenge.
He said: “We all walked five times over the hot embers at 1,000 degrees Celsius.
“The 13 locals helped raise a fabulous £2,237.00 for the Little Heroes Cancer Trust.”
