A brave bereaved father is organising a charity cycle course to raise money for Sands. Sands is a charity that supports the families of stillborn babies; with cycling being so popular in Bournemouth, Dan Hills wants cyclists of all abilities to join him on a 12-hour ride at Bournemouth Velodrome.

The Daisy Hills Endurance Challenge takes place on June 30.

Riders will cycle Bournemouth Velodrome, Winton Way, Bournemouth BH10 4EP from 7am to 7pm.

Dan said: “Ten years ago, this September, we lost our baby daughter. She was due and we had her nursery ready, decorated in pink, mobiles, a cot, baby alarms and a range of clothes and cuddly toys at the ready. My daughter died before she took her first breath.

“The team at Poole Hospital were amazing in their support for us, and Sands were invaluable in their support for my wife and I. We want to give something back.”

To enter the Daisy Hills Endurance Challenge, entrants will need to form a team of form a team of four to six team members (males and/or females) who all must be aged 16 years or over to help raise funds for Sands.
