All-round entertainer Jimmy has raised around half-a-million pounds for Francis House over the years.
That is thanks to countless touring shows and parish hall events across almost two decades.
Based at Didsbury, Francis House cares for children and young adults with life-threatening conditions.
It provides a home from home where families can receive professional care, support and friendship.

The seven-bedroom building at Francis House opened in November 1991, with Diana, Princess of Wales, officially doing the honours.

It was only the fifth children’s hospice built in the UK and the world.
