"A fantastic night is guaranteed to get you into the party season. Our Christmas Ball is a big income generator for the hospice."
Lucy Thompson

Tickets are on sale for Francis House Children’s Hospice’s annual fundraising ball.

The event takes place on Friday, December 6, at the Mere Resort and Spa from 7pm to 1.30am.

Guests will be treated to an arrival drink, three course meal and entertainment from hilarious compere Sarah Powell, and auctioneer Thomas Forrester from television’s Bargain Hunt.

The theme this year is Putting on the Glitz - 1920s style - and the dress code is black tie.

Tickets for the event are £750 for a table of 10, or £850 for a platinum table of 10 on the front two rows.

Proceeds will go towards Francis House running costs. It costs more than £4.7 million a year to run the Didsbury based hospice, which cares for more than 500 families of children and young adults with life-limiting conditions.

Lucy Thompson, events manager said: “A fantastic night is guaranteed to get you into the party season. Our Christmas Ball is a big income generator for us and by joining us in December, you’ll also be supporting your local children’s hospice and the many families from across the north west that we care for.”
