It’s come to that time of year again where the University of Lincoln Hockey Club fundraise in memory of Grace Millane. 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 sidelines cheering on the teams and the club. Along with this, you could guarantee she would be dancing the nights away with VKs in hand in Quack, whipping her hair back and forth to Proud Mary by Tina Turner and singing her guts out to Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran. In December 2018, Grace was tragically murdered on her 22nd birthday while travelling in New Zealand. As a club, we continue to fight for the global end of Male violence against Women and the global end of the Rough Sex Defence. Her memory is continued in everything that those who knew and loved her do. 

In loving memory of Grace, ULHC along with other University of Lincoln sports clubs and societies, as well as other Universities are going to be challenging themselves to complete 24 kilometres in the week of the 1st of December to the 8th of December. This will be completed in support of charities that are close in the hearts of Gracefamily 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.
