Two Misterton women are undertaking sponsored walks in aid of Joel – the Complete Package.

District Councillor Hazel Brand is walking the length of Hadrian’s Wall this month, while Nicola Needham is tackling a 13-mile trek in the Peak District in September.

Between them, they are hoping to raise £700 for the charity, which is dedicated to supporting families trying to conceive, through pregnancy and parenting after experiencing the loss of a baby.

A particular initiative is to raise £35,000 to refurbish a birth room at Bassetlaw Hospital.

“I’m doing this in memory of the two babies I miscarried but also in celebration of our two beautiful daughters, Megan and Rosie,” said Nicola.

“Without the support from this charity, I am not sure how I would have got through my pregnancy carrying Rosie.”
