Lots of children love to dance, and those staying at Richard House Children’s Hospice are no different.

The youngsters and their families enjoyed a day of creative fun this weekend thanks to dance company Rambert, including a chance to perform with special dance elastic and balloons.

They were also able to make Valentine’s Day cards and take part in a music session, even conducting part of it.

Faith Isahosa and her children were among the families attending the session.

She said: “It was great. I wanted to come together and meet people who give their time to make families comfortable and happy.

“I just want to say thanks to Rambert and their followers for making music a healing process for families with challenging children and their siblings.”
