The ABP Newport Marathon, a thank you to our followers and our exciting special Bio-glitter® news...
The team at Katie’s Heart , our extended family, friends, followers and supporters would like to congratulate Katie on completing her first marathon. Not only did she complete the ABP Newport Marathon on 29th April 2018, she ran the 26.5 miles in 4 hours 21 minutes. This is just incredible and we couldn’t be prouder!
We have raised £856 for Look Good Feel Better so far 2018 and to say we are chuffed to bits is an understatement!
Thank you to our customers and all who donated to the marathon, we couldn't have achieved it without you! We remain committed to our promise that £1 of every transaction made is donated to LGFB. The charity was a great help to Katie during her chemotherapy journey and as a thank you we give back to them so they can continue to run their confidence workshops for women, teenagers and also now men facing the side effects of cancer treatment.

Katie: "I've completed a marathon! I still can't believe it! I had trained up to 17 miles before and this was the point where I really struggled. My trainer Gerraint Webb at UFit in Cardiff prepared me for the marathon. His plan was based around weekly weight training PTs combined with one long run and also interval sessions. The results speak for themselves! Gerraint has been my trainer for years and he was there for me as soon as I was ready to get back into training after chemotherapy. THANKS G, YOU ARE THE BEST!'

Emma: “I was abroad when Katie ran the marathon. I was tearful (happy tears!) to wake up to find out my best mate had just smashed her first marathon in 4hrs 21mins! She is incredible. Only a few years ago she battled cervical cancer then breast cancer. Watching your 36 year old best mate sit on six occasions hooked up to a bag labelled ‘radioactive’ was something I wouldn’t wish on anyone. The way she dealt with it all was so inspiring and the support she received from LGFB was so important. You go girl! 4hours 21mins! What next?”
We have other awesome news to share & celebrate...
Katie's Heart are now licensed, official suppliers of Bio-glitter®
#bioglitter #supportlocal and #veganfriendly
Our biodegradable glitter is at the very heart of our journey. As recognised, licensed suppliers of Bio-glitter® we are able help eradicate all of those companies stating their glitter is biodegradable when sadly it is not.
What is so special about Bio-glitter® other than the fact it is biodegradable?
Bio-glitter® is based on biodegradable film made from trees, primarily eucalyptus, sourced from responsibly managed plantations.
Bio-glitter® contains low levels of heavy metals. Antimony levels in Bio-glitter® are below the limits of detection, effectively zero. Whereas, cosmetic polyester glitter can have antimony levels as high as 150ppm. The antimony in polyester is a by-product of a catalyst used in the manufacture of polyester.
Bio-glitter® feels more comfortable on the skin. Bio-glitter® is physically 30-40% softer than polyester glitter.
A huge shout out to our friends at Bio-glitter® HQ for helping us with our journey!
As official suppliers we can supply you from 5ml (3.25g fine & 3g chunky) to 10ml in our festival kits (6.5g fine & 6g chunky) all the way up to as much Bio-glitter® as you would like! Contact us for bespoke orders and deals!
Thank you for taking the time to read about Kate's amazing marathon time and our joint journey to becoming licensed retailers of #bioglitter
Peace out y'all
