Niall Grace Donation Appeal

Financial support costs for the family of Niall Grace who is in an induced coma following an assault on Sunday 11th September in Derry~Londonderry.

Niall Grace is in a critical condition in The Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast following an assault in the City Centre, Derry~Londonderry, in the early hours of Sunday morning, 11th September.

He is in an induced coma and his family are keeping a 24 hour vigil at his bedside. As a result, they are incurring both travelling and accommodation expenses. This unexpected financial burden comes at what is already a very stressful time for Niall’s family.

As a gesture of concern and support, Institute Football Club have launched this appeal in order to mitigate the pressures that Niall’s family must be experiencing. We have consulted with Niall’s family, and whilst they are not personally predisposed to seek help at this time, they have given us permission to organise this appeal in order to facilitate an expression of support from both the football family and the wider community. Consequently, we would greatly appreciate any financial support you could offer at this time.

Niall is a key player for Institute Football Club and he is held in the highest esteem by his team mates and everyone associated with the club. Indeed, we have been asked to convey the concerns and best wishes of many individuals, clubs, and associations who all hope and pray that he will eventually make a full recovery. In the meantime, our objective, with your support, is to provide both practical and emotional support for his family.

Thank you for your help.
