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.

We were honoured to meet with the wonderful women behind The Saving Grace Trust when they visited Galway Hospice to present the donation. Pictured left to right are: Claire Donelon, Grace’s aunt Katherine Kenneally, Joanne Tierney (Galway Hospice), Grace’s mother Ethna Kenneally; and Peter Glynn (Galway Hospice).
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’.
