British Institute of Funeral Directors announces charity for coming year

The newly elected president of the British Institute of Funeral Directors (BIFD) has announced the charity that the organisation is going to support for the coming year.

Robert Gresty, who was voted as president of the organisation in the annual general meeting, has decided to sponsor Manchester’s Francis House Children’s Hospice, which cares for terminally ill children and their families, and was officially opened by Princess Diana in 1991.

Originally opened as a Catholic convent, the hospice now cares for children from all creeds and backgrounds, but it requires £3.5 million each year to function, and so the BIFD’s contribution will no doubt help to aid the lives of terminally ill children across the north west.
