Simone says

“I think it’s really important for my mental and physical health to set myself challenges (I’m quite competitive) and to have some fun raising money for the great work the Health Charity is able to do to support patients and staff. I’m so lucky to work alongside a great team, within an organisation that strives to make a difference to people’s lives. Thank you to everyone who has and continues to support me”.

Simone’s dedication is truly inspiring, and the Cardiff & Vale Health Charity team would like to say an enormous thank you for her kindness and continuous support – both in and out of office hours. We are with you all the way to the multiple finish lines!
