We’re holding two special fundraising events across Greater Manchester this Christmas, to help raise funds to support people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
We care for and support thousands of local people each year at our sites in Heald Green, Little Hulton and the Neil Cliffe Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital, and we’re holding two family-friendly Christmas fairs to celebrate the festive season.
Everyone is welcome at the events, which promise to be a real feast of family fun – with cakes and crafts, facepainting and tombolas… and a visit from Santa too.
The first fair of the holiday season will be held on Sunday 19th November from 12noon to 3pm at our hospice site in Little Hulton. Highlights will include festive entertainment, Santa’s Grotto, festive stalls, children’s crafts, tombola, raffles, and plenty of refreshments for visitors to enjoy.
On Sunday 26th November from 12noon to 3pm, the fun will move to Heald Green Village Hall which will include a range of festive stalls, Santa’s Grotto, mince pies and mulled wine, and other entertainment suitable for the whole family.
Eamonn O’Neal, Chief Executive of St Ann’s, said: “We’re a charity that loves being a part of the local communities we serve, and our Christmas fairs are always a highlight of our annual fundraising calendar. We can’t wait to meet as many local people as possible, and every penny raised will make a huge difference to our patients and their families.”
It is just £1 entry for adults at both fairs, with accompanied children free for Heald Green, and just 50p for children at Little Hulton. For more information on the Christmas fairs, or other forthcoming St Ann’s events or activities, please call 0161 498 3631 or click here.
