Fundraising for Graces Place, Manchester

The inspiration is three year old Grace Tinarwo from Rochdale who suffers from the chromosomal abnormality Patau Syndrome, which means that Grace is unable to see, speak or feed properly. She is cared for by her parents Sarah and Cuthbert and her big sister Shalom.

At the moment, if Grace needs specialist care or respite the family have to travel to South Manchester or Chorley.

Having recognised the need for a children’s hospice in North Manchester to help children like Grace, Bury Hospice and Pennine Care NHS Trust secured a £500,000 grant and embarked on a mission to create something magical.

Grace’s Place will be a specialist hospice for children suffering from cancers, nuerological illnesses, genetic illness and physical disabilities in North Manchester.

This will be only the 50th children’s hospice in the country and will be a sanctuary dedicated to providing palliative and end of life care for children from Oldham, Rochdale, Middleton, Heywood and Bury.

Their mission is to create a beautiful, peaceful, safe environment for families with children who have life-threatening or terminal illness.
