Story

In Memory of Grace Parrott

Grace attended Cheltenham University studying Early Childhood Studies. As part of her degree placement, she volunteered at Battledown. After successfully gaining her degree in June 2017, she was successful in attaining a full time role at the centre as an Early Years Practitioner in the November. Grace loved the centre, her work colleagues and most of all the children and gave everything to assist in their care, support and development. Her time at Battledown was cut short by her untimely death at the age of 22, just 7 months after. In her memory, we'd like to ask for donations to the centre to continue to develop the amazing care and work they put in. Grace would have loved this and it is her legacy of helping others that we strive to achieve.

Battledown helps and encourages each of their unique pupils to be “the best that they can be”. They strive to create an outstanding, exciting and uplifting learning environment. Coming to school each day, pupils and families know that they are entering the kind, caring, happy environment that is Battledown Centre for Children & Families.

    We have just surpassed the £5,000 mark on JustGiving! This is an indescribable success. I can't thank any more those who donated and shared. You are all amazing. To achieve this is such a short space of time is incredible. Over the next month or so, I am looking to travel to Battledown to visit the centre for the first time and to hand over what we have raised. The page will stay running, however, for the foreseeable future. Any donations, big or small, have massive impacts. Please continue to share the page. Thanks Jack

    Hello I'd just like to say thanks to Ben for his efforts over the past weeks. He started with organising a charity football match with his friends which managed to raise a brilliant £250. This effort was continued as he and his work colleagues had a charity dress-down week followed by a bake sale which provided another incredible £730! It's a massive push towards our goal of helping Battledown and I personally couldn't be happier about it. Jack

    Hello As some of you know or may have noticed, we are currently recieving donations for a dedicated 'coast-to-coast' bike ride for Grace's Battledown cause. This 170 mile trip from Morcombe to Bridlington ('Way of the Roses') will be taken on by Di & David Brown, Richard & Judy Purslow and Lynette & Francis Power on the 17th August. This is a tremendous act of goodwill for Grace's cause and we couldn't be more appreciative. We wish them luck in their journey! Jack
