Mill Gate donates vital funds to Grace’s Place
Mill Gate has donated £500 to Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, Grace’s Place thanks to the good wishes of shoppers.
The Bury shopping centre hosted Radcliffe Rotary Club’s wishing well on the Mall throughout 2017. Shoppers could throw in spare change to the well as they made a wish.
A grand total of £1000 was raised which has been split between the Rotary Club and Mill Gate chosen charity.
The team at Mill Gate decided to donate the £500 to Radcliffe based children’s hospice, named Grace’s Place which offers families in and around Bury, Oldham and Rochdale, specialist care and support to children with life-shortening conditions along with support and aftercare to the children’s families.
Mill Gate manager Marie Gribben said: “The wishing well is really popular with youngsters visiting the Centre so we thought that it was appropriate to donate the money to a charity which helps support and care for children and their families.”
