A charity firewalk has been rescheduled after being postponed due to bad weather.

The walk was expected to raise cash for the Bone Cancer Research Trust in memory of 11-year-old Mary Collard.

It had to be put off after strong winds were scheduled to hit Weston around the time of the event.

The show will go on, however, with the organisers, Amanda Hunter and Paul Evans rearranging the event for April 12.

It was originally due to take place on March 15.

Amanda said: “We would like to raise awareness of bone cancer and money to fund crucial research to prevent anymore families going through the devastation of losing a loved one.
