Yellow walk for Zayden at Lake Weeroona


A SEA of people in yellow shirts have made their way around Lake Weeroona in support of the construction of a playground in memory of baby Zayden Veal-Whitting. 

Zayden's aunty Angie Whitting said she was overwhelmed with the turnout at the walk.  

"It shows how much people care (about Zayden's memory)," she said.

"We are trying to raise funds for Zayden's playground - Where Angels Play.

"It's really moving to see all these people."

The group walked two laps of the lake.

"There were some faces I did not know," Ms Whitting said. 

"That was good."


A WALK is under way at Lake Weeroona to raise funds for a playground in memory of baby Zayden Veal-Whitting.

The memorial playground, to be called Where Angels Play, will be a bright, happy space allowing the community to remember a happy little boy as he was, rather than with overwhelming sadness and shock. 

Zayden's aunty Angie Whitting says she is overwhelmed with the turnout at the walk.

"It's really good," she said.

Zayden was killed in his cot on June 15, 2012. Burglar Harley Hicks was found guilty of Zayden's murder by a Supreme Court jury and sentenced to life imprisonment with a non-parole period of 32 years. He has sought leave to appeal his sentence.
