Holchem team raises over £4,000 for Grace's Place

Blog | 30 July 2018

We’re delighted to announce that the Holchem team has raised over £4,000 for Grace’s Place, a new children’s hospice in Bury. Members of our team took part in a grueling Coast2Coast challenge, cycling 139 miles over three days.

The funds raised will go towards the opening of the new hospice, and helping those in our local community who will be spending time there.  It 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. It is starting out simply at first with the Hospice at Home and stepping up full service as soon as possible – visit gracesplace for further information.

Helen Latham, senior fundraiser at Grace's Place, said: A huge well done to everyone who took part in this extraordinary challenge! We simply couldn't do what we do without the support of our local community, so it means the world to us - and the children with life-shortening conditions and their families we care for - when individuals, groups, businesses and communities come together so enthusiastically to raise the funds we need. A massive thank you from everyone at Forget Me Not!
