THE parents of a boy who suffered a cot death have raised more than �700 by organising a sponsored walk in his memory.
Charlie Shepherd was just three-and-a-half months old when he died four years ago.
His mother and father, Jennie and Scott, of Gonville Crescent in Stevenage, held a Mile in Memory walk in Fairlands Valley Park to raise money for The Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths (FSID).
Jennie and Scott and their children, Oliver, eight, and Harry, two, were joined by about 80 people at the event.

Jennie said: "My brother who lives in Australia wanted to join in and so he did a mile-long walk over there."
She added: "I would like to thank my family and friends for all their support with making this day so successful."
