During December 2015 everyone at Airsweb voted for Francis House Children’s Hospice, in Manchester, as the Company charity for 2016. Francis House was one of four charities nominated by staff and it received 50% of the votes.
Francis House was put forward by one of our team who had personal experience of the amazing and vital work supporting children and young adults with short life expectancy. It’s a charity that supports over 370 children and their families, providing exceptional and vital care in a place of comfort, rest, fun and enjoyment.
To support and help raise money for Francis House, teams and individuals are putting their ‘vote’ where their ‘mouth’ is and putting themselves forward for amazing and hard challenges.

Kick starting the fundraising has seen Leslie Duroe, Airsweb Marketing Manager complete the Liverpool Half Marathon on Sunday, 13 March 2016, with over 6,500 other runners.
