Political group raises funds at annual bash
MEMBERS of Macclesfield’s Conservative Association showed their support for Francis House Children’s Hospice – handing it a cash boost of more than £500.
Local Conservatives raised the funds at their annual festive concert, which featured Poynton’s Cantata duo and was held at Adlington Hall.
Francis House, based in Didsbury, Manchester, provides care for children and young adults with life threatening conditions and also provides support and friendship for the whole family.
The flexible childcentred service provided by the hospice means it is able to support families when they are at a low ebb or facing difficult times.
Macclesfield MP, David Rutley, and association chairman John Bowden presented Lucy Thompson, events fundraiser for Francis House, with a cheque for the hospice.
Lucy said: “The fundraising team at Francis House Children’s Hospice would like to thank Macclesfield Conservative Association for choosing to support the hospice.
“Francis House has recently doubled in size with a seven bedroom extension for teenagers and young adults with life-limiting conditions, giving them a place to relax and spend time with their friends in a safe, comfortable environment.
“This £540 donation will make a great difference to the charity.”
