Our annual summer fairs in Little Hulton and Heald Green have become a popular addition to the annual calendar for local families, and this year’s events raised more than £10,000 to help us care for local patients.
What an amazing show of support and generosity from our local communities once again. We can’t thank everyone enough for their support and we hope they had fun, picking up a bargain, and joining in with some of the many activities on offer at the fairs. We were helped out on the day by more than 70 volunteers too, who selflessly gave up their time to make the events such a success. We couldn’t do it without them. We’re approaching our 50th birthday soon, and it’s amazing to think that we’re only still here, caring for thousands of patients every year, thanks to those people in the local community that offer us their unending support. We simply wouldn’t be here without the generosity of everyone who gives money, time and kindness to St Ann’s, and we never take that for granted. Thanks very much for everything you do for our patients and their families. Eamonn O’Neal, Chief Executive of the hospice
