Big-hearted runners pounded city streets to raise money for a baby memorial garden.

The group from Chesterfield SANDS – which supports bereaved parents – took part in the 5k Big Fun Run in Sheffield on Sunday.

They raised £400 to go towards the construction of the memorial garden at Boythorpe Cemetery.

Fifteen-year-old Callum South, of Newbold, the nephew of Chesterfield SANDS founder Nicky Whelan, was first to cross the finishing line in 19 minutes.

Nicky said: “He joined in for fun and to help raise money for our group. We all made it across the finishing line, including my seven-year-old old son, Luke.

“It was a fantastic day.”
