A Pilling pub is to host a ‘walk of pain’ to raise money for a children’s cancer charity.

Eighteen brave participants will each take a barefoot walk over 400 smashed glass bottles, with a view to raising more than £2,000 for Little Heroes.

The event, on Saturday, March 14, at 7.30pm, takes place at the Elletson Arms.

Bosses are promising a great evening – not only can you watch the participants face the walk of pain, but there’s also a BBQ, live music and a few extra surprises.

All profits from the evening will go to Little Heroes which supports children undergoing treatment for cancer.

Elletson Arms landlords Mick Keeler and Julie Kingham decided to create the event following the success of a ‘fire walk’ last year, which also raised more than £2,000 for the charity.

Mick, who will be participating in the walk of pain, said: “The event last year was a huge success, great fun and really brought the community together.

“It seemed only fitting to do it again.

“However, we’ve upped the ante and for this year have laid down an even greater challenge for our fearless regulars.

“It’s for such a worthy cause and walking on glass is nothing when compared to cancer.

“We hope to raise 
awareness for the charity and as much money as possible.”
