In aid of The Donna Louise Children's Hospice Trust
August 16-17th Grapplethon, Congleton, Cheshire
- For those who dont know, a Grapplethon (www.grapplethon.org) is an event where practitioners can roll BJJ for 24 hours (shifts/slots or the full 24 hours!!) This event is open to all practitioners, reguardless of affiliation or club, All belt levels welcome, its all about having fun, doing what we love and raising money for a great cause. What leads me to The Donna Louise Trust, The Donna Louise Trust (www.donnalouisetrust.org/)
is a children's hospice for Staffordshire and south Cheshire, they provide care and support for children with shortened life expectancy or those who, due to illness or injury have a life threatening or life limiting condition. This amazing trust provides emotional and pratical support for children and their families at their homes and at the hospice. The hospice is based in Trentham, Stoke-on-Trent. It costs £2.5 million a year for them to deliver their vital service.
