The Range makes sizeable donation

Retailer The Range has donated £40,687 to Francis House.

The money will help towards the funding of the day-to-day care the hospice provides for children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

The Range is one of the country’s fastest growing home, garden and leisure superstores, with 140 stores currently trading.  As the business has continued to expand and become increasingly popular, the owner is pleased to be able to support a very worthwhile local charity.

A spokesperson for The Range said; “We are delighted to be able to donate to such a good cause.  We have stores in Eccles, Altrincham and Warrington so are pleased to be able to give something back to the community, especially to a charity that relies heavily on voluntary contributions.”

Francis House is thrilled to have received such a large donation from retailer.

“We have stores in Eccles, Altrincham and Warrington

so are pleased to be able to give something back to the community.”

David Ireland said of the donation: “We are really grateful to have been considered for this wonderfully generous donation. It came out of the blue and at a time when all children’s hospices are experiencing cash flow problems. It will be used very effectively, currently out of every £1 we spend 83p goes directly towards the care of the children and young adults.  A donation of this size pays for a registered nurse for a whole year. On behalf of Francis House and the 460 families we support from across the north west of England I would like to express our grateful thanks.”

Francis House services are provided completely free of charge to the families that need them.
