Norwich couple to hold fundraising swim in memory of daughter
A couple whose daughter died at the age of just 13 months are organising a charity swim in her memory.
Pixie Belle Wilson was seen as a 'little angel' to the close-knit family of British troops stationed in Brunei, but in July she was tragically found dead in her cot by her mum. Now, six months on, her parents are joining forces with friends and family to raise money for charity in her honour.
Emily Wilson moved to Brunei in November 2009 with her husband Oz, originally from Norwich, and their three children Charlie, Lola and Pixie.
Oz was stationed in the South Asian country with the Army Air Corps and the family were due to stay there for two years.
Now, Oz, 38, and Emily, 33, are organising a 24 hour swim to pay tribute to their daughter and raise funds for the FSID (The Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths).

On February 12, 36 swimmers will be taking part in a 24 hour swim at Wattisham Army base, where Oz is stationed. Each will swim a total of four hours each.
