Francis House: Fund-raising show lined up for October
Jimmy Cricket is doing another show for his favourite charity in October.
The famous funnyman will be headlining a performance of music and laughter at Fox Lane Sports Club in Leyland, Lancashire.
The show will raise funds for Francis House Children’s Hospice in south Manchester.
Jimmy posted on social media: “My thanks to @eventphotos67 for arranging this show.
“We are looking forward to raising much-needed funds for @FrancisHouseCH via this charity show this coming October.
“Why not come along folks if you live local #liveperformance.”
The show, which is on Friday 8 October, will also feature Jimmy’s wife, who sings by the name of May Marion, and his good friend Jim Nicholas, also an entertainer and long-time supporter of the hospice.
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.
