Friend in a Million

The vision of Friend in a Million is that of many people supporting our children and their families by making a regular donation to Francis House.

We ask our subscribers to make a minimum donation of £5 per year. You may do this by cheque, credit card, on line or if possible by Standing Order.

Gift Aid – if you are a tax payer we are able to claim 25p plus transitional relief from HM Revenue and Customs, which makes each donation of £5 worth £6.40.

Friend in a Million Agents – Being an agent entails recruiting family members, friends, work colleagues, neighbours, church members etc who are willing to make an annual donation to the scheme. The group can be as large or as small as you wish.

As an Agent you would be asked to collect the subscriptions each year at a time convenient to yourself. We suggest each member is given a card (supplied by us) on which the amount given and the date are recorded and initialled.

You would then send the donations to Francis House accompanied with the names and addresses of the members. You will then receive an official receipt and an acknowledgement to show to your members.

Three times a year each member will receive a copy of our Francis House Newsletter.

If you are interested in becoming a Friend in a Million or an Agent we will send you a leaflet giving more information about the scheme, the way in which you can set up a Standing Order and more details about Gift Aid.

Please phone Pauline on 0161 434 7252 or email

Thank you in anticipation. We look forward to welcoming you as one of our Friends in a Million.
