It might still be cool underfoot but there is an opportunity to warm up later this month - and raise money for charity at the same time.

Old Albanians are hosting a Fire Walk at Woollams in Harpenden Road, St Albans, on Thursday, March 26, in aid of the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre Charitable Fund

An international quartet of Saracens rugby players joined radiotherapists from the cancer centre to help promote the Fire Walk which invites participants to walk barefoot over 15ft of hot coals.

The players were keen to promote the event but will not be doing it themselves as they have a derby match on the Saturday.

The money raised will go towards providing emotional and practical support from Mount Vernon’s information and support services.
