Share your favourite Francis House memory

Francis House Children’s Hospice is urging its supporters, families, staff and volunteers to share their favourite memory from the last thirty years on a special 30th Anniversary Memory Wall.

Francis House is celebrating 30 years of providing care, support and friendship to the families of children with life-limiting conditions.  Diana, Princess of Wales officially opened the seven bedroomed children’s hospice on November 25, 1991.

David Ireland, chief executive said: “It’s a great achievement to be marking 30 years of providing paediatric palliative care to thousands of children and families from across the North West.

“We couldn’t have achieved this without so many dedicated people, trustees, supporters, staff and volunteers who think of us year on year and who give us the confidence to welcome more and more families.”

“Many of us have incredible memories from the past three decades. For the 500 families who use Francis House they live for the moment, and our role is to make every moment count. We help them experience things that provide good memories that will help them in the future.”

"A former student suggested Francis House as the recipients of the profits from our annual charity show. This began a relationship that has lasted 20 years. Alongside the Annual show we have all had great fun raising funds; from sponsorship for tidying bedrooms, sleep overs at the studio and my most fool hardy to date a sky jump!"
