Along with other University of Lincoln sports clubs and societies, the University of Lincoln Hockey Club completed 24 kilometres of walking, swimming and cycling to fundraise in memory of Grace Millane.
The fundraising was a huge success and they have managed to raise over £2800, which is almost triple their target! The funds will be donated to three different charities that are close to the hearts of Grace's family and friends.
Congratulations and thank you to every society and individual who took part in the fundraising activities and helped to make Grace's Week so successful.
President of University of Lincoln Hockey Club
It was truly amazing to have so many sports and societies not only from Lincoln but from other universities involved in Grace’s Week. We are so overwhelmed with everyone’s kindness and clear desire to get involved. We will remember Grace as the kind and loyal friend she truly was not only during Grace’s Week but always. She will be forever be a part of ULHC. We also wanted to raise awareness to three incredible charities during the week that work so hard to help victims and support families. We understood that it was important to raise money for them so they can keep up their amazing work. Thank you to everyone that donated to our fundraiser.

As a team we couldn’t pass up getting involved for such an amazing cause. We’ve enjoyed the challenge of Grace’s week and it encouraged our team to get active alongside other teams and unis. Thank you for the hockey club for reaching out and raising awareness and money for such an incredible cause! We would loved to be involved again in the future!

“Grace’s week was a great way of raising awareness and celebrating Grace’s life in the best way possible, given the current circumstances. It was an amazing week of challenges with lots of walks, runs and bike-rides! Members of women’s football absolutely loved getting involved, helping to contribute raise money for those charities chosen by Grace’s loved ones.
