AGRIEVING Amman Valley man is taking part in the Snowdonia Marathon in memory of his late partner.
Sylvia Ella Paull, the former manager of Ystradowen Day Care Centre, died of lung cancer last April at the age of 45, despite never having smoked.
NowCarl Jeremiah, her long-term partner, will be raising funds for Tenovus when he competes in the gruelling Snowdonia race on Saturday, October 27.
“I’m not a runner – I’ve never previously run further than 10km,” Carl, 50, an electrician with Carmarthenshire County Council, told the Guardian.
“But when Sylvia passed passed away I registered for the Snowdonia Marathon and I’m running in Sylvia’s memory and for the Tenovus cancer charity.
“Sylvia and I had many happy years together – she was a qualified chef who had a passion for making wonderful cakes.
“She was a very special lady and the most giving and unselfish person you could ever meet. I loved her dearly and miss her deeply.
“I’d like to thank all family, friends and colleagues for their continued support and kind donations.”
