Coronation Street's Sally Dynevor has marked a major milestone in the £3.5 million extension of a Manchester children's hospice.
The actress, who plays Sally Webster, attended a 'topping out' ceremony at Francis House as builders reached the highest point of the two-storey, seven bedroom development.
The extension will house a teenage and young adult wing.
After the ceremony Sally met up with parent Jo Roddy and her 13 year old son James, who stay at Francis House for short respite breaks.
Francis House was opened by Princess Diana in 1991.
It provides care for children and young adults with life-threatening conditions, as well as providing support and friendship for their families.
The wing is expected to open towards the end of the year.
