This exciting project unique to Francis House could involve you, your company, social club, creative or marketing department in the decoration of a Christmas tree in an exciting theme of your choice which could include your corporate identity/brand.

The decorated trees will be prominently displayed to the public at the Lowry Outlet Mall, Salford Quays from 28th October to 9th December before being sold to the highest bidder.

Francis House Children’s Hospice will supply an artificial tree (approx. 1.5m) and lights free of charge – the rest is up to you.


For more information and a registration form contact the fundraising team on 0161 443 2200.
