Rhiannon Vowles


The Daisy Garland
A family-run national children’s charity providing active support for children with drug-resistant epilepsy and their parents/carers. The charity was set up in memory of our daughter Daisy who tragically died at 6 years of age from SUDEP (sudden unexpected death in epilepsy patients). We provide NHS hospitals with ketogenic dietitians - a medically recognised and accepted way of treating drug resistant epilepsy. This diet is not widely available on the NHS due to lack of funding. We also provide grants for night-time breathing monitors to children with drug-resistant epilepsy.

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

On 2 April 2017 I will be running my first marathon, the Greater Manchester Marathon, and raising money for an amazing charity in memory of Teddy Grant, the son of my close friends Nikki and Charlie. 

The Daisy Garland provides support to families with children who have drug-resistant epilepsy. They are only a small charity but have helped so many people. All donations are greatly appreciated as they go towards changing someones life for the better. 

Just like my previous race (the Great Birmingham Run) I will be thinking of Teddy on my way around the course and I am sure he will again give me the strength to finish. Teddy was a super special boy and showed so much courage and strength in the 12 months he was with us. 

As many of you will know, this is not the first time that I have entered this marathon. Two years ago I had to pull out a few weeks before the race as I had a stress fracture of my femur (thigh bone). It has been a long and painful journey to get my fitness back but it has made me even more determined that I will complete this!

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations. xx
