High Sheriff Special Recognition Award

Francis House receives a very special award for an outstanding contribution to the community during the COVID-19 crisis.

To Revd David Ireland and all the Team at Francis House,

I am delighted to present you with The High Sheriff Special Recognition Award.

The Award is made to an individual or group of individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the community during the difficult circumstances brought about by the C-19 pandemic.

You were nominated for your amazing work in looking after the patients and families in your community. You care for people when they are at their most vulnerable. It is a wonderful thing to do and you do it within a framework of strong values. This has been a challenging and difficult period and yet you have continued with your vocation with great skill and humility. As well as caring for patients you have been looking after each other’s wellbeing, which is extremely important at this time. I have seen all of this at very close quarters and you should be very proud.

Please accept this certificate in recognition of the Award and when the lockdown restrictions are lifted, I hope to have a High Sheriff event, at which we may be able to celebrate appropriately.

On behalf of the people of Greater Manchester, thank you for your thoughtful service.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Eamonn O’Neal DL

High Sheriff of Greater Manchester

"We are delighted to have received this Award from the High Sheriff of Greater Manchester. For the hospice to be recognised for its contribution during this difficult time is greatly appreciated. The staff have done a brilliant job supporting the families who rely on us and it is really nice for the charity to be recognised in this way. Our thanks to Eamonn from everyone at Francis House."

Revd David Ireland, CEO of Francis House.
