Two supporters of Children's Hospice South West are taking on the London Marathon this year in support of Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) – and for both it’s their first ever marathon!
Emma Smale, aged 33 from Bideford used CHSW’s Little Bridge House hospice in Fremington for support and care with her daughter Imogen before her death in March 2016.
