Our annual Christmas fairs in Little Hulton, Heald Green and at the Neil Cliffe Centre in Wythenshawe Hospice raised a massive £8782.60 for St Ann’s, thanks to the generous support of local people.

Eamonn O’Neal, Chief Executive of St Ann’s, said: “We’re thrilled that so many people came along to our fairs and helped us to raise so much money.

“As a charity we only receive around a third of our funding from the NHS so we have to fundraise around £16,000 every day to ensure we can continue providing free care to our patients.

“The fairs were great fun, and it was brilliant to see the community coming together. A big thank you to everyone involved.”

St Ann’s cares for people from our three hospice sites, and in the place they call home too. We are one of the oldest hospices outside of London, having been supporting local patients for almost half a century.

We’re more than just a charity to our patients. Every single penny donated makes a huge difference to their lives.
