My Story

Allan and I are doing the Kiltwalk in memory of my daughter, Claire Barnett, and to raise funds for the Scottish Cot Death Trust. Claire was born on 2nd January 1983, a healthy baby girl much loved by all the family. Her two sisters and brother adored her. We had plans and dreams for her. These dreams were shattered when I found her lifeless in her cot on the morning of 28 January. The picture above was taken the night before. For a year I went around in a daze; I hurt so much it was physically painful. If it hadn’t been for my other children I don’t think I could have gone on. My older daughter was six at the time and developed childhood migraine. My son, at two, escaped from the garden shortly after and was found on his way to the hospital to get his baby back. Six months later we were at a community day where there was a fire engine and he asked if they could put the ladder up to heaven to get his baby back. It was just heart-breaking. The family and extended family were all affected. This is the first time I’ve shared my story as I still find it really hard to talk about it.

Please sponsor us to fund vital research into why some babies and children die, how future deaths and the corresponding heartache may be prevented and to provide much needed support to anyone affected by the sudden unexpected death of a baby or young child. By supporting the Scottish Cot Death Trust you can help us make a difference. Sir Tom Hunter is generously donating another 50% to the amount raised through the Kiltwalk so every penny counts. Thank you.
