Firewalk at Rackheath pub raises funds for Norfolk charity Break

Over 50 people have taken part in a firewalk in the hope of raising around �7,000 for a Norfolk charity.

The event was held at the Green Man pub in Rackheath on Thursday night to raise funds for Break, which provides support for vulnerable children, young people and families across East Anglia.

All participants received a two-hour motivational talk prior to taking the walk, while their supporters were entertained by a raffle, barbecue, live music and a quiz.

Break fundraising officer, Martin Green, said: 'It was a fantastic event which, everyone enjoyed and the Green Man could not have been more helpful.

'We were particularly pleased that some of the young people who we support took part. We still have some sponsorship money to come in but we hope to raise up to �7,000.'
