Po­lit­i­cal group raises funds at an­nual bash

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

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.”
