Not-for-profit expresses gratitude after celebrating first birthday  


The founders of a Lichfield-based not-for-profit dedicated to providing pre-loved care equipment for those in need have expressed their gratitude following the organisation’s first birthday celebrations.

Grace Cares was co-founded by Emma Smith, Adam Harrison and Hannah Montgomery, who have poured their own resources and time into the cause over the past 12 months.

The organisation is on a mission to fight for older individuals who find themselves without anyone in their corner.

Additionally, Grace Cares aims to support the health and social care workforce and advocate for sustainability.

During its first year, Grace Cares has received awards from Aviva, Lichfield District Council and the health and social care sector, as well as earning support from cleaning technology brand Karcher and the Commonwealth Games.

Attendees at a first birthday brunch at Grace Cares’ unit at Elmhurst Business Park in Lichfield were able to learn more about the not-for-profit’s mission, as well as indulging in self-care with hand and Indian head massages provided by professional therapists from Senses and Siam and Serenity.

Emma said: “Grace Cares has been a journey of passion and purpose. We are immensely grateful for the support we've received and in turn the amount of people we have been able to help.

“Together, we are making a positive impact, and this celebration is a testament to the power of collective effort.”
