They are all members of the HR Team at Principality Building Society were devastated at losing Mike age 59, just 2 years ago.
Marie explains why Fent’s Fab Three “Take a Walk in My Shoes”:
” We were due to enter the Cardiff Half Marathon to raise funds to support the incredible work of City Hospice. It’s been delayed so we decided we needed to do something now! So we’re entering the “Take a Walk in My Shoes” challenge. It’s a great way to keep fit and remember Mike whilst raising some much needed money for City Hospice”.
The trio will be walking 10,000 steps every day for 14 days between 17th – 30th November and hope that, as well as raising some money, they’ll be keeping fit too!
Samantha and Emma added:
“We appreciate the incredible care that Mike received when he was ill from City Hospice and how well his family were also looked after when the worst happened. We really enjoyed taking part in last years Sparkle Walk and taking part in a challenge like this is a great way to help the Hospice and remember Mike who was such a shining star and will never be forgotten”.
Daisy Magill, Fundraising Officer said:
“ It’s so great that some of the team from Principality are involved with a City Hospice event once again. It’s fabulous that you’re being part of “Take a Walk in My Shoes” and we hope to see you at the Cardiff Half Marathon next year. We really appreciate their ongoing support of City Hospice and we know how much it means to Mike’s family too”.
