Emma Smale is supporting the #keepitlocal campaign for the local charities supported by this year’s Great West Run as she regularly runs in support of Children's Hospice South West (CHSW) in memory of her eldest daughter, Imogen who was supported by the charity before her death in 2016.
As Emma says:
Team CHSW were out in force at this year’s Great Bristol 10k.
Ocean Studios at Royal William Yard in Plymouth was the venue for Children’s Hospice South West’s (CHSW) networking event on Thursday 10th May.
The event was set up to give local business people the opportunity to network with each other while also finding out about the work the local children’s charity does in supporting children with life limiting or life-threatening illnesses and their families.
Four more businesses have shown their support for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) by each sponsoring a paint station at the charity’s upcoming Rainbow Run in Newquay.
