Along with other University of Lincoln sports clubs and societies, the University of Lincoln Hockey Club will be challenging themselves to complete 24 kilometres. This will be completed in support of charities that are close to the hearts of Grace’s family and friends. Each person who participates will complete the distance by either walking, running, cycling or swimming. The 24 kilometre distance is in honour of Grace’s 24th birthday which would have been on the 2nd of December.

“Grace was a bright light within ULHC with the brightest smile and most contagious laugh. She had the biggest heart and was there for anyone no matter the time of day or how busy she was. She captained the Ladies 2’s in her second year and when off the pitch she was always on the side-lines cheering on the teams and the club.”
