Grace the Bear
2014 saw the launch of our Grace Bear Campaign.
This campaign is very special to the Holland Family. The bear is named after Grace Holland who is the only child of Gemma Holland and the late Nick Holland Junior and granddaughter of Gill Holland and the late Nick Holland Senior, who established Spinney Motorhomes in 1975.
Nick Junior worked at Spinney from 2002 and ran the service department from 2006 until his very unexpected death in February 2010 from an undiagnosed heart condition. Grace was only 9 weeks old at the time and is a very special part of the Holland family who brings comfort and pride to all.
As you can see from the photos Grace is a very outgoing and cheeky 5 year old whose favourite things include horses, her 2 kittens Belle and Sooty, riding her bike and scooter and playing with her best friend and cousin, Billy. She loves to go on caravanning/motorhoming adventures to the seaside in the summer and particularly likes sleeping in the cab above the driving seats in the motorhomes which she sees as her own little 'den'!
Every motorhome or caravan sold is supplied with a precious Grace Bear. We want this bear to be taken on all your adventures and enjoy with you all the fun you have in your motorhome or caravan. We would like pictures and even stories of the adventures you have taken Grace Bear on, these can be uploaded to our Facebook or Twitter pages, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or even sent in the post. Competitions with fantastic prizes will be run throughout the year.
The Grace Bear is also available to purchase from either of our Spinney sites with a donation of £10 being made to CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young). Since Nick Jnr's death we have been raising money for this charity which was founded in 1995 to raise awareness of conditions that can lead to young sudden cardiac death (YSCD); sudden death syndrome (SDS); SADS. CRY's Vision is to work with cardiologists and family doctors to promote and protect the cardiac health of our young by establishing good practice and screening facilities devoted to significantly reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death throughout the UK.
