TV Actor, John Thomson, will have Cold Feet no longer later this month when he walks over hot coals in aid of his favourite charity, the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust, and he is urging people to join him.

John became Patron of the charity last year and hot on the heels of the popular ITV show’s seventh series, which starts on September 8, John will be rolling up his trouser legs to walk over 20ft of glowing, red-hot embers to raise funds for the charity. The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust, provides holidays for terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children from all over the North West.

It will be the charity’s ninth fire walking event and John is calling for brave souls to join him for the cause which is close to his heart.

He said: “I always like to rise to a challenge, and it’s something I’ve never done before so I’m quite excited to do something different and raise money for one of my favourite charities at the same time – and I definitely won’t get Cold Feet!”

Participants will join John for a two-hour training session with fire walking professionals beforehand. Friends and family will be able to cheer on the sidelines and can enjoy a bar, BBQ and live entertainment.

The event takes place on September 29. There is a £10 entry fee and walkers must raise a minimum of £100 for the charity to take part. For further information or to register contact Pippa Watton at CAFT by emailing or calling 01565 830 053.
