This year a team from Holchem is taking on the grueling Coast 2 Coast challenge to raise funds for Grace’s Place, a new children’s hospice in Bury. The famous challenge invites cyclists to pound the pedals 135 miles from Whitehaven to Sunderland and the team will be carrying out the bike ride over three days - 18th, 19th and 20th May. It takes in one of the most picturesque routes in the UK weaving west to east through the edge of the Lake District, climbing to the northern Pennines, follows Hadrian’s Wall, and then heads down the coast to its finishing point. It’s certainly not a challenge for the faint hearted!
Grace’s Place is part of the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and is due to begin caring for children and families in the Bury, Rochdale and Oldham areas. More than 650 children in the North Manchester area are living with life-shortening conditions, but the vast majority aren’t getting any children’s hospice support at all. By opening the hospice in Bury the charity will ensure care is available for more children and families in the area.
