A moving video has been released to mark the fundraising efforts of a couple from Stonea who lost their four-year-old daughter last year.

Alyson and Neil Clark recently presented East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) with a cheque for £39,105 after they drove a tractor and candy pink trailer 990 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats.

They thought up the epic challenge as a way to pay tribute to their daughter Mikayla. Known as Little Miss Giggles, a name given to her by the Manea Pre-School she attended, Mikayla was diagnosed with a brain stem tumour a few days after her fourth birthday. She died on April 12 last year.

Alyson, who will take part in the Ely Colour Dash on August 12, said: “We’ll always be truly thankful to EACH. They made the hardest journey that little bit easier to bear.

“Even though losing Mikayla has brought us great sadness, in her name we have turned this hardest journey into something so positive.

EACH has shared the Clark family story in a photo montage. To watch the video visit https://vimeo.com/224621810
