Pedal-powered tribute | August 20, 2011 | By Will Frampton

A WESTBURY couple are holding a fundraising day at Westbury Town Football Club in memory of their baby Maisie, who died last year.

Dad Jim Pickernell, 30, has played with the reserves for the club, where his father-in-law is chairman, for five years, and thought it would be the perfect venue for a children’s bike and trike challenge.

The couple, of Timor Road, are hoping to raise as much as possible for the Children’s Intensive Care Unit at Bristol Children’s Hospital, where Maisie was cared for.

Maisie died last May aged just nine weeks and four days, after suffering from spinal muscular atrophy, a genetic condition which is most severe in babies. The event, on September 4, will raise money through sponsorship as youngsters aim to complete five full laps of the pitch.
