Emma Wilkins

Thank you for visiting my Just Giving page. My name is Emma and I'm running the Cardiff Half Marathon to raise funds for George Thomas Hospice Care.

There are so many worthwhile charities and causes which strike a chord in so many people's lives and singling one out can be extremely difficult, from much needed research into cancer treatments or charities that support and care for those living through this awful disease. My reason for choosing the George Thomas Hospice Care is simple.....on the 22nd July 2017 my world was changed forever with the loss of my mother in law, a kind, generous, beautiful lady who sadly lost her battle with cancer which she had so bravely fought. Sally, a loving wife, mum, daughter, sister, auntie, friend and most recently nanny lived her life with such a positive attitude, a positivity that was infectious. And keeping her and the family so positive was the help, support and care provided by George Thomas Hospice Care. They were there for both Sally and the family through it all and their support was and always will be considered invaluable.

So on the 1st October, I'll be donning my running shoes (bought as a Christmas present from Sally) to run/jog/walk the Cardiff Half Marathon to raise funds for this worthwhile charity so that they can help others like they helped us.

Any donation, whether it's pence or pound is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,


Emma Wilkins
