A TEAM of friends of a Dunfermline shop have walked over a sea of glass to help a young West Fife boy.

Claire Nicholson, owner of Happy Earth Place, organised the fundraiser after her son, Sean, wanted to do something for Aaron Murphy, who was a classmate at McLean Primary last year.

Brave Aaron is currently battling cancer for the second time and a fundraising appeal was started which will fund further treatment abroad if his current treatment at Great Ormond Street is unsuccessful.

Claire said they hope to have raised around £1,000 from the event.

"It went really well," she said. "It was run by Lee Walls, from Firewalk Scotland, and she did it as a favour for me and donated her time as part of the event. The room was given in kind by Gym 64 who also had a bucket throughout the day and collected money in the gym."

A team of 13 brave participants treaded barefoot over the glass to do their bit.

"One by one, everyone did it," added Claire. "It was kind of jaggy just how you suspect so you had to be careful how to place your feet. There were no lost toes and we got through it without any major casualties.

"It was a really good event and it was quite emotional."
