Kelsey Anson from Weston-super-Mare has raised over £460 by conquering the Clevedon Fire Walk for children and young people with cancer.
Kelsey tested her bravery by walking 15 feet over hot coals on Friday 13 November. The hot coals were up to 1,200 degrees fahrenheit and left Kelsey with rather warm feet afterwards!
Kelsey aimed to raise £200 in aid of CLIC Sargent, and has more than doubled her original target, thanks to the generosity of her friends and family.
Kelsey, 20, said: “I felt inspired by a friend who always did what she could to support those who need it the most and when I had seen this amazing opportunity and experience to raise money for CLIC Sargent, I had to take it.
“It means a lot to me to know that I can make a difference to somebody’s life through the amazing work this charity does.
“I would not have been able to do this without the support from my friends and family so I would like to thank them for all of their generous donations and huge support.”
A courageous challenge
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Victoria Williams said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Kelsey has made this wonderful contribution.
“We really appreciate the courage that has gone into raising the pounds – every penny raised will help provide vital support for children and young people with cancer, and their families.”
