A FIRE walk to raise money for families affected by mitochondrial disease will take place on Sunday in Darfield.

The walk, at Strawbridges Garden Centre, kicks off at 4pm, and the grandmother of young Daniel Green, Zoe Darcy, is encouraging residents to get involved in their first fundraiser since the end of lockdown.

She said: “The fire walk is at Daniel’s favourite place to be.

“This is our first proper fundraiser since Covid and we’re wanting as many people to go as possible - we’ve really struggled for fundraising this year.

“We managed to get the funds for his pool last year and now we’re trying to raise money to help with research around the disease.”

Zoe also wants more people to be aware of mitochondrial disease and admits that it’s hard explaining Daniel’s situation to everyone.

“I want more people to be aware of what it is because there’s lot of children suffering from this.

“There’s loads of research projects but there’s no cure as of yet.

“Whilst we’ve got Daniel we want to raise as much awareness as we possibly can.”
