Can you donate Easter eggs to St Ann’s?

We’re appealing for the egg-cellent people of Greater Manchester to support our patients by donating Easter Eggs for our two forthcoming events.

We care for people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses from across Greater Manchester, and we’re holding two fundraising Easter Egg Hunts to help raise funds for our patients and their families. We’re asking for local businesses or individuals to consider donating chocolate eggs to help us ensure children taking part have as much fun as possible.

Eamonn O’Neal, Chief Executive of St Ann’s, said: “We’re really lucky that local people are always so supportive of the hospice and we couldn’t care for our patients without them shelling out – no yolk, we think it’s cracking.  But, terrible egg puns aside, we’d love people to pop into our Heald Green site, Little Hulton site or the Neil Cliffe Centre, and drop off a chocolate egg or two.

“Please do consider buying one with your weekly shop, or if you’re a business, perhaps each employee could save the money spent on a takeaway sandwich one day and spend it on an Easter Egg for St Ann’s instead?  The money raised at the events will have a huge impact on the lives of our patients, right when they need it most, and any donations will be gratefully received.”

Our Easter Egg hunts will be taking place on 31st March from 12 noon to 3pm at Wythenshawe Park (near the Courtyard Café) and in Heaton Park (near the Farm Centre) at the same time.

As well as the hunts, the events will also include stalls, games and other activities for the whole family to enjoy.

If you can help with Easter Egg donations or would like tickets to take your family to one of the hunts, please contact our fundraising team on 0161 498 3631 or email

We need to raise £16,000 every day to keep the hospice doors open

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