Haven House Children's Hospice had an early start on Friday, 25th May, as presenter Gethin Jones and the crew from Daybreak broadcast live from its Woodford Green grounds as part of “Children’s Hospice Week”.
There was a real party atmosphere, with children’s entertainers and Johnny from X Factor providing the fun for the children and families who use Haven House. There were also a number of children and parents from Avon House Preparatory School in Woodford Green, who turned up to lend their support.
Local celebrities were also in attendance, including actors Ray Winstone, Gary Lucy and Vicki Michelle and celebrity trainer Kevin Adams.
Mike Palfreman, Chief Executive of Haven House said; ‘This was a fantastic opportunity to showcase our local hospice to the nation. Everyone had a great day and the children and families were delighted to be able to talk to Gethin about our vital work here and what our hospice means to them.’
Children’s Hospice Week is organised by national charity Together for Short Lives, and is the UK’s only fundraising and awareness raising week for children’s hospice services.
