She will be embarking on a 100-mile bike ride cycling the entire distance in a day along with her university friend Terri Davey, a decade on from her loss.

Marcie said: "This challenge is a massive thing physically and mentally for us both but completing it and raising money for a much-needed resource at the QEH makes every mile worth it.

"Sadly, many babies die every day in this country and to have a dedicated space for bereaved families to try in some way ease the most difficult time means everything to us.

"We will never get over losing our little girl but we have been very lucky to go on to have two sons Barnaby, aged five, and Alby Blue, aged three.

"Little Loan was due on the June 2, 2012, and to mark the 10-year anniversary my dear friend Terri and I will be cycling 100 miles in a day, ten for each year. The ride will take place on Wednesday, June 1.
