LITTLE super heroes have helped raise £1,600 for the baby bereavement charity Sands.

A group of 50 fundraisers completed a special one mile charity superstar walk at Pittencrieff Park in Dunfermline on Saturday.

The Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity is a national organisation that provides support to anyone affected by the death of a baby.

The event was organised by Fife branch chairperson Janine Norris, who lost her own daughter six years ago.

“Our wee girl was stillborn in 2013,” she said. “Sands has been an absolute lifeline for me and my husband. They still continue to help. I still go to support meetings myself.

“It might not be every month but if there are important milestones then it can be really hard.”

She continued: “In the summer there is a family fun day where there is a moment of reflection and we have a Christmas service.

“It can be a really difficult time of year and you can feel like your baby has been forgotten.

“You get that time to think about them and know that other people remember them.”

Janine has previously organised a number of different fundraisers, including a ceilidh, bake sales and a gin and movie night, but wanted to do an event that involved kids.

She added: “The weather was absolutely cracking. The wee ones absolutely loved racing about. Hopefully we’ve raised some awareness as well as money for Sands.”

Baby Loss Awareness Week is from October 9 to 15 every year.
