Jimmy Cricket enjoyed a nostalgia trip when he appeared at St Mary’s Parish Centre in Denton, Greater Manchester.

The popular comedian was pleased to be reminded of two books which he released in the 1980s containing volumes of his famous “Letters from his Mammy”.

Paul brought along copies of the “Letters from his Mammy” books Jimmy released in the 1980s

He was appearing in a fund-raiser which was the first event of this year’s annual tour of Manchester Catholic parishes where Jimmy performs in aid of the Francis House Children’s Hospice.

The event raised £1,500 for Francis House on the night.

Francis House Children’s Hospice, which is based at Didsbury in Manchester, cares for children and young adults with life-threatening conditions.

It also provides a home from home where families can receive professional care, support and friendship.

Care is given free of charge, regardless of faith or cultural background.

Francis House is open to all families who have children under 16 years of age on referral diagnosed as having a life-threatening or life-limiting condition.

Learn more about the great work done by Francis House Children’s Hospice at the charity’s official website.
