More than 60 people gathered at The Diamond, Rathcoole on the morning of Saturday, March 22 to take part in the Abbie’s Angels sponsored walk from Rathcoole to Belfast.

Local woman Kerry Lockhart (29) organised the event in memory of her daughter, Abbie, who was stillborn on March 27 last year.

The walk raised hundreds of pounds for Sands - the stillbirth and neonatal death charity - and awareness of its vital work.

Sponsorship money is still being collected, so the final total raised won’t be known until next month.
