Children's hospice plan unveiled

A new children's hospice will be built in Bury. Grace's Place, named after a toddler with complex medical problems, will provide palliative and end of life care for children and their families across North Manchester.

"Hard to imagine": The children's hospice that needs a million to build

A new children's hospice is being built in Bury, and £1m is needed to finish it.

Grace's Place is due to open by next autumn. It will be one of only 50 hospices for youngsters nationwide.

It is being built on the site of a former hospice. Those behind the scheme have raised £500,000 towards the costs, but need even more cash to complete the work.

Our reporter Mel Barham was given a tour of the site, as construction gets underway.
