MORE than 100 people are set to take part in a seafront sponsored walk in memory of a baby.

Indi-Faith Dunkley was born six-and-a-half-weeks premature with a condition called megacystis microcolonintestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome which meant her organs did not work properly.

She spent the first 11 weeks of her life at Princess Anne maternity hospital, in Southampton.

When doctors realised there was nothing more they could do, parents Shona Martin, 24, and Sam Dunkley, 22, from Havant, were allowed to take her home.

They spent a precious fortnight together as a family before she took a turn for the worse and was moved to Chestnut Tree Childrens Hospice, near Arundel.

She died on February 1.

Mr Dunkley’s aunt, Kelly Bulled has organised the walk on May 19 to raise money for the hospital and hospice.
