Galway Hospice recently received a donation of €50,000 as one of the chosen charities of The Saving Grace Trust. The Saving Grace Trust was inspired by the beautiful Grace Kenneally, a young girl who sadly passed away in 2016 at the age of ten following a battle with neuroblastoma, a rare type of cancer. When Grace was diagnosed, her family and friends set about raising funds so that she could receive a particular type of treatment. Sadly Grace didn’t get to receive that treatment but her legacy lives on in so many ways. A staggering €250,000 was raised and ultimately divided between local and national charities; Galway Hospice was one of those charities. To read more about Grace’s story, please click here:

Warm and heartfelt thanks to Claire, Katherine and Ethna for choosing to support Galway Hospice in such a special way and for allowing Galway Hospice to be part of Grace’s legacy. We are honoured to have been ‘gracified’.
