A DAUGHTER ran 10k for three charities in memory of her mother.
Naomi Blundell, 33, was inspired to raise money for St Kentigern Hospice, Macmillan Cancer Support and the Glan Clwyd Stroke Association, after the death of her mum, Kath Le Maistre, of Prestatyn, in February.
Mrs Le Maistre, 62 who lived in Lichfield Drive, with her husband Paul, died following a brief battle with pancreatic cancer and also suffered three strokes.
Mrs Blundell, said: “Fundraising in my mum's memory is a really important way of saying thank you to the people and organisations who supported my mum and dad, and who were so kind to all of us, throughout her illness.
“It has been a really difficult year and felt like it would be a good idea to do something positive and say thank you to these three fantastic causes and a way to remember my mum.”
Mrs Le Maistre, who retired to North Wales in 2003, spent one week in St Kentigern Hospice in January and was also cared for by staff at Glan Clwyd Hospital’s Stroke Unit.
Mrs Blundell, who lives in Devon with her husband, Andy, and two children Lottie and Tom, completed the run on October 14 in Staffordshire, where she grew up with her parents.
