Francis House benefits from Rochdale ‘jam’ night
A children’s hospice in south Manchester benefited from Jimmy Cricket’s latest ‘jam’ night in Rochdale.
The event, hosted by the famous Northern Irish entertainer and his wife May Marion every couple of months, takes place in the lounge area of a local parish centre in his home town of Rochdale.
It started about a decade ago as an opportunity for Jimmy and other performers to try out new routines and is still going strong.
The famous entertainer has nicknamed those who come to regularly support these evenings as ‘Jimmy’s Jammers’.
At every event, there is a raffle and the selling of refreshments, with all proceeds donated to a chosen charity.
Francis House Children’s Hospice, which is based in Didsbury, was the beneficiary of the December jam night, which was also attended by Brian and Maxine Warner of Warner Entertainments.
