Eggceptional Easter Egg hunts

Eamonn with the Easter Bunny

St Ann’s received eggceptional support from the cracking people of Greater Manchester, following our appeal for Easter egg donations.

Kind-hearted individuals and businesses shelled out and donated more than 1,700 Easter eggs for us to use in two special fundraising Easter egg hunt events over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The events, which took place in Wythenshawe Park and Heaton Park, also included other activities for the children to enjoy.


It’s no yolk how eggstremely generous people from all over Greater Manchester are when it comes to supporting our patients and their families.  We were overwhelmed by the support received, both in terms of eggs donated, and families joining us for the Easter Egg Hunts at the weekend.

Eamonn added: “It’s amazing that after almost 50 years of care, St Ann’s can always count on local people to help us when we need them.  We never take that for granted, and I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped us out with an egg donation, or who came along to one of the parks on the day.  I hope they had a great time.”

The two events raised in the region of £4000 for the hospice, which will help us to continue to provide care to patients at our three sites in Heald Green, Little Hulton and the Neil Cliffe Centre in Wythenshawe Hospital, as well as in the local community via a range of outreach services.
