Members of Autism Rocks (Fife) turned up the heat for their latest fundraiser – a coalwalk at Balbirnie House.

Fourteen enthusiasts walked across burning hot coals three times – once for the group, once for their children and once for themselves – raising a very impressive £3500.

The group is dedicated to providing facilities plus help and advice in Levenmouth for people and families affected by autism.

Founder Liza Quin, of Methil, said: “All the participants were completely buzzing with the whole thing. It was the most amazing experience. We did a three-hour workshop beforehand, which included walking across broken glass and breaking an arrow with our throats. But doing that before the firewalk totally psyched us up. For parents of youngsters with autism, it was a very empowering experience. We can now achieve anything after what we did. So now we are thinking about our next challenge – how we are going to top that, I have no idea.”
