Cian Pace killed in a car crash

The family of a Sheffield teenager killed in a car crash are continuing to raise funds for the hospital that treated him.

Cian Pace, from Shirecliffe, died in the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham, four days after the crash near Brook Hill roundabout in November last year.

The 19-year-old has saved the lives of five people after his family agreed to follow his wishes and donate some of his organs.

Cian’s family are now wanting to help others in similar situations and are raising money for improved facilities for relatives at the intensive care unit at the hospital.

On Saturday, Grace Keane, Cian’s cousin, will take on a charity cycle at the Asda store in Chapeltown, from 10am.

The 19-year-old, from Shiregreen, is to cycle 77 miles - the distance from the Hillsborough football ground to Goodison Park, the home of Cian’s beloved Everton Football Club.

Grace said: “It is our aim to raise enough funds to support the hospital in improving the rooms and facilities for families that need space and comfort at a very difficult time.”

Grace’s challenge comes after 20 members of Cian’s family took part in the cancelled Sheffield Half Marathon and fun run.

Donations can be made on Saturday or by ‘liking’ the family’s fundraising page - www.facebook.com/CianPaceFundraising
