A WOMAN from Anglesey recently raised £662 for St. David's Hospice following a 20km run.

Sharon Owen from Amlwch took on the fundraising challenge in memory of much-loved friend Nia Booth, who died in 2017 after battling brain tumours for several years.

In the space of a week, Sharon took part in the Anglesey 10k and the Chester equivalent and raised the sum of £662 thanks to kind donations from friends and family.

"The best part of the races was when I'd completed them both in memory of a dear friend and helped raise valuable funds and awareness for St David’s Hospice," Sharon said.

“I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has not just sponsored me and shared my story. Peter Booth, Nia’s husband who helped raise sponsor money for me, and my running buddies, Caz Hull and Eleanor Goad who each did a 10k with me”

“I’m looking forward to doing another challenge next year for the Hospice.”

St David’s Hospice delivers palliative and end of life care to those who need it most in Gwynedd, Anglesey and Conwy. St David’s Hospice recently merged with Hospice at Home Gwynedd and Anglesey to become one organisation ensuring Hospice care continues to be available free of charge to the local people of North West Wales.
