Francis House stages many fundraising events through the year, these are organised:
- By willing individuals
- By the Kirsty Club
- By the Fundraising Office
- By Events Manager – Lucy Thompson
Lucy organises events throughout the year and hopes to offer ‘something for everyone.’ If you are an individual, a group, a business or a family you will hopefully find an event to suit you and support Francis House.
She has a BA (hons) in Hospitality Management with Tourism. She worked for the Marriott Hotel Group for eight years as the golf and sports manager and senior events manager.
In 2013 Lucy gained her Certificate in Fundraising qualification. She has also completed a Fundraising Event course with the Institute of Fundraising
Before taking over as our events manager, Lucy worked closely with Judy Bailey our events organiser. Judy worked with Francis House from 1994 when she organised our first Halle concert and Party in the park nights initially held at Arley Hall, then later in association with Tatton Park and their concerts.
Lucy now organises an annual ball at the beginning of December, which for many of our supporters has become the ‘beginning of Christmas’. The ball is always a sell out and has grown in popularity.
If you would like to help Francis House further there are sponsorship packages available which can be tailor-made to suit individual requirements. There is a continual need for raffle prizes and auction lots – all of which help Francis House raise the much needed money to keep the hospice running.
Any of Lucy’s events make a perfect birthday, anniversary or Christmas gift so ask her for more information on 07841 530248 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Whatever the occasion you can guarantee that a Francis House event will be a memorable occasion!
