Running in memory of Millie
Last month, the Maesteg School community tragically lost a very special pupil, Millie Carter.
Millie was a happy, caring and extremely resilient young person. She will be greatly missed by everyone.
In Millie’s memory, Mrs Sparkes and Mrs Fleming have been fundraising for the Wales Air Ambulance by taking part in a range of endurance events. Between them they will complete the Cardiff Half Marathon and an Ultra Marathon this month.
Mrs Fleming: Ultra Marathon, London
“On Saturday I ran the Ultra Marathon 50KM in London, in memory of Millie. A beautiful pupil that our school community sadly lost.
This run had more purpose than any other I’ve completed before. Mrs. Sparkes and I are ever so grateful for all the generous contributions donated to Wales Air Ambulance.
‘Running can’t solve all our problems. Running can’t give a hug. Running can’t hold hands that need to be held. Runners can though. And that gives us hope’
Millie you will be greatly missed.”
Much Love, Mrs. Fleming.
Mrs Sparkes: Cardiff Half Marathon
“On Sunday I will be running the Cardiff Half Marathon with a special sense of purpose. I will run for Millie.
Millie was a happy, caring and unbelievably resilient young person. She will be sadly missed by everyone.
In Millie’s memory we have been fundraising for the Wales Air Ambulance by competing in a range of endurance events.
We have raised a staggering £625 and are extremely grateful for all donations and kind messages.
Millie was an inspiration to us all.
Millie, this is for you.”
