Beckton hospice to screen children’s films

A children’s hospice will be hosting its annual “Oscars” event on Saturday.

It will be the fifth such event for Richard House Children’s Hospice in Beckton.

The glittering award ceremony will include a viewing of films that have been created over the past year by children and young adults at the hospice, and their siblings.

They are members of the hospice’s Living Films club, where they learn to produce their own short movies.

Children, young adults and their families are among those invited together with an, as yet, unconfirmed celebrity.

The hospice provides care and services to children with life-limiting, life-threatening and complex healthcare conditions and their families.

Many of the children who use the hospice are not expected to reach adulthood and they enjoy a wide variety of experiences at Richard House.
