Altrincham Duck

Taking Altrincham by storm since 2014

Come rain or shine a community spirited volunteer visited her local Homebase store at Altrincham Retail Park every week to collect donations from generous customers.

Ann Yearsley’s hours of dedication were rewarded when she was able to hand over £4,190 to Francis House Children’s Hospice.

Store manager Gary Laybats said: “Ann has been tremendous, she receives a warm reception from all our customers who have been so generous in their support of Francis House.”

Francis Mouse, the hospice mascot, helped to receive the funds joined by store staff.

Charitable Ann also helps to run the 2 Little Ducks Community Group that supports local people in need in the Broadheath area of Altrincham.

The group also helps to decorate and sponsor a tree at the Festival of Christmas Trees pop-up shop display at the Lowry Outlet in Salford Quays. The annual event organised by Francis House, sees businesses and groups decorate a Christmas tree which then go to the highest bidder raising thousands of pounds for the Greater Manchester charity.  

Francis House would like to thank Ann for being a ‘wonderful volunteer’ and long-term supporter.
