FUNDRAISING in memory of a three-year-old who died on a West Fife road will take place this summer.

Robyn Knox, of Cardenden, died after being struck by a car in Townhill in 2020.

Since then, her family and friends have hosted multiple fundraisers in the toddler's name.

Now, a group of eight women will walk the 96-mile-long West Highland Way for Remembering Robyn, a charity set up to support families facing similar tragedies.

Mum Danielle Falconer has climbed 10 Munros previously, including Ben Nevis, for the cause, but will be cheering from the sidelines this year as she takes care of her "rainbow baby" who was due this week.

"I am so grateful that these wonderful ladies are all still willing to go out there and walk the 96 miles in our girl's memory, we will all be there at Fort William to welcome them over the finish line," she said.

"We started the fundraising in order to create a room in the hospital (Victoria) for parents and staff to decompress and take time away from the daily struggle of hospital life.

"We have money set aside for this as we’ve been unable to pursue it due to COVID restrictions, however, due to restrictions lifting, we are able to, and plan to, go ahead and have the room completed during Robyn’s angel month of August and September."

The family have also provided funding for dance scholarships for two children at at Starlet Dance Studio, where Robyn had been taught.

"We’ve given back to people in need, completed random acts of kindness, and provided the hospital with day-to-day essentials for kids, parents and staff over the past year and a half," she continued.

"We hope to also use the fundraising money to continue helping those most in need – in particular, bereaved parents with ‘helping hands’ boxes and continue the dance scholarships and introduce a nursery scholarship at Noah’s Ark Nursery where Robyn attended and her siblings now do."

Taking part in the walk will be Danielle's cousin, Annilie Muller, from Townhill, who says she is doing it for her "little sidekick".

"I feel very mixed emotions about the West Highland Way. It’s the biggest challenge I think I will ever take on," she added.

"Last year, I lost four stone as a sponsored slim in Robyn’s memory and took part in the Munro and Ben Nevis challenge for Remembering Robyn but this, I think, will be the biggest challenge of them all."

The 27-year-old will be joined by Aisha Ferguson, Joanne Ferguson, Narinder Bookher, Kelsie Skinner, Kruz Skinner, Kloe Newbigging and Lucy Bedborough, some of whom have participated in previous challenges.

The family hope that Robyn's legacy will continue to inspire people, something they say she did every day.

"It keeps her spirit and fire alive in our lives and that’s something we endeavour to keep – our girl's love and passion for life alive," Danielle continued.

"By helping others during possibly the most difficult times of their lives we feel we are continuing to show Robyn’s massive heart of gold through that.

"Robyn is still very much in people’s thoughts. Kids often speak of her and adults too.

"To hear it melts my heart as it shows us that people are remembering and it gives us a reason to continue our journey.

"People from all over the world know Robyn, know us, her story and our journey."

This year, Danielle also hopes to host a "school's out for summer" fayre in celebration of what would have been Robyn's first year at school, as well as a Halloween event and a 'Ladies' Night' in the winter months.

They also plan to complete the 'Miles for Smiles' challenge which last year saw the whole Remembering Robyn team walk 9,154.7 miles throughout the month of August.

The group will start their six-day hike of the West Highland Way on July 24, starting in Milngavie and finishing at Fort William
