A group of Fife girls took part in a ‘onesie sponsored walk’ across the Forth Road Bridge to give a worthy cause a £1050 cash boost.

Kim Penrose from Kirkcaldy and her friends Lisa Hinchcliffe, Stacey Slessor, Hazel Moore and Elaine Rafferty all did the sponsored walk on Sunday to raise money for SANDS (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society).

Kim said: “We chose this particular charity because we had heard about the good work it does. We completed the walk and raised an amazing £1050. The bridge had 40 mph wind so it wasn’t comfortable but we managed to do it. My partner walked with us as well and Stacey’s family came to cheer us on.

“We are so pleased we have raised so much. We made more than double what we thought we would.”

SANDS supports anyone who has been affected by the death of a baby before, during or shortly after birth.

It offers emotional support and information for parents, families, health professionals and others.
