Swindon's Bus Company driver Amy Howells is fundraising for neonatal death charity Sands.

Amy plans to walk 106km around the Isle of Wight, 100km from London to Brighton, 100km along the Jurassic coast, and 100km along the south coast of the UK, all in a matter of months.

She has already held a danceathon event and completed a 50km route through the Chiltern.

“What Sands does is amazing for parents and people who have suffered in silence. It helps them remember the babies they lost and reach out to others who are going through similar things,” says Amy.
