Kirsty Howard

In October 2015 we lost our brave and beloved Kirsty Howard. A patient at Francis House Children's Hospice, Kirsty had an exceptionally rare heart condition but defied her prognosis for over 14 years. She was our friend, our inspiration, and the driving force behind a campaign that had raised over £7.5 million for Francis House Children's Hospice at the time of her passing.

Building on Kirsty’s legacy

Today, the campaign continues – more determined than ever to build on Kirsty’s incredible legacy by expanding and improving the facilities at the hospice so we can support and care for more children and their families. A new £3.5 million extension was opened in 2014 aimed at caring for teenagers and young adults, but we mustn’t stop there. Please join in the campaign and help us.
