Give a gift in memory

Celebrate the life of a loved one by making a donation in their memory to Francis House.

Magnolia in the garden at Francis House

By choosing to remember someone special you can help Francis House to continue to provide much needed care and support to families of children and young adults with life-limiting conditions.

Prior to the funeral the funeral director may ask if you would like to make a donation to charity. Donations can then be collected from the funeral service, or in lieu of flowers, or you can make a one-off donation in the name of the person you wish to remember.

Donation envelopes and house boxes can be provided for a funeral from our fundraising team by calling 0161 443 2200.

Cheques made payable to Francis House Children’s Hospice can be sent to us or handed in to the Fundraising office.

We are very touched and grateful to receive in memory donations and we will send you a letter of thanks and offer our condolences, we will also let you know how the money will be used to benefit the families that rely on Francis House.
