Retailer The Range makes sizeable donation to children's charity

Francis House Children's Hospice is thrilled to have received a £40,687 donation from retailer The Range.

Retailer The Range makes sizeable donation to children's charity

The donation will go towards funding the day-to-day care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and the necessary support and short-term rest for their families.

The Range is one of the country’s fastest growing home, garden and leisure superstores, with 140 stores currently trading.  As the business has continued to expand and become increasingly popular, the owner is pleased to be able to support a very worthwhile local charity.

A spokesperson for The Range said; “We are delighted to be able to donate to such a good cause.  We have stores in Altrincham, Eccles and Warrington so are pleased to be able to give something back to the community, especially to a charity that relies heavily on voluntary contributions.”

Francis House offers care and support for the whole family in the Greater Manchester area.  Home care, day care, end of life care, as well as sibling, parent and bereavement support are just a few of the vital services that Francis House can offer, to ensure that children and their families can make the most of the time they have together.

David Ireland, chief executive of Francis House Children’s Hospice, said of the donation from the retailer: “We are really grateful to have been considered for this wonderfully generous donation. It came out of the blue and at a time when all children’s hospices are experiencing cash flow problems. It will be used very effectively, currently out of every £1 we spend 83p goes directly towards the care of the children and young adults.  A donation of this size pays for a registered nurse for a whole year. On behalf of Francis House and the 460 families we support from across the north west of England I would like to express our grateful thanks.”

Francis House services are completely free of charge to families that need them.  It offers a unique service to children and their families, relying primarily on the generosity of the public, its corporate supporters and volunteers.
