City of Salford Catenian Association Auction for Francis HouseRead more ...
Each year we raise funds for a deserving cause and this year what could be more deserving than Francis House.
Francis House Children’s Hospice provides care for children, teenagers and young adults with a short life expectancy and delivers the necessary support and short-term rest for their families. From its site in Didsbury, the hospice serves a much wider geographical area than adult facilities, supporting families from all over the North West. Francis House is a haven where young people can forget the problems associated with their condition and enjoy a place of rest, fun and enjoyment in a comfortable home from home environment. Families are given a break from their role as carers, and the children and young people are given experiences to enrich their short lives. Annual running costs are £4.2 million - equivalent to £11,507 per day - and all services are given completely free of charge. By far the largest part of funding comes through charitable donations. For more information on Francis House please visit www.francishouse.org.uk.
