Angels walked the streets of Kirk Hallam on Saturday to raise money for mums who have suffered miscarriages.

Rev Dave Fergus and Rev Rachel Thompson donned halos and collected cash as they walked and were also sponsored to complete the route.

The money will be spent on a memorial stone in the garden of the All Saints Church to give people affected by miscarriage somewhere to spend time.

Rev Fergus said: “We wanted to do this to give those women who have suffered miscarriages somewhere to remember and reflect. As far as we know there is no place or service like this and these people are still suffering a loss and grief.”

Sponsorship and donations collected so far total just under £900, £1000 is needed for the stone. To donate call Rev Fergus on 0115 9322402.
