The Hallowe’en firewalk in aid of the Larbert cancer care centre proved a huge success with participants raising £12,000 for the charity. The event, which took place in the grounds of the local centre, was the third firewalk to be held by Maggie’s Forth Valley.

With the firewalk taking place just a few days before Hallowe’en it was a spooktacular themed night, watched by family and friends cheering the walkers on. All those walking took part in a safety seminar and a motivational chat before completing the challenge.
