On Sunday April 28th, 2019 Nia Rowlands originally from Llanrwst, will be ticking the London Marathon off her bucket list as she takes on the 26.2mile route in memory of her husband Simon.

Inspired by the care her husband received at St David’s Hospice she will be raising money for the local charity.

In August 2014, Simon sadly lost a long battle with a brain tumour, aged just 35. Since then, Nia and her family have continuously fundraised for the Hospice through golf nights, the Colour Run, the Dragon Boat Race and other events.

Nia, 35, primary school teacher said:

“Si was a wonderful family man and a larger than life character, who loved his golf and was an avid Man City fan. Once met, never forgotten.

“Over the last 4 years, in Si’s memory we have continued to fundraise for St David’s Hospice, to give back to this incredible and priceless service for the first class care and support we received there as a family in his final weeks. Nothing was ever too much and it was made to feel like a home from home.

“When the opportunity to run the London Marathon for the Hospice came up, I couldn’t refuse. I don’t think Si would quite believe I’m doing it! I hope he would be very proud of the way the girls and I live life to the full and fill our time with making memories.

“If you can spare me a few pennies and donate to this wonderful cause. We never know when we may need them.”
