There was music in the air at a children’s hospice as a lively jazz troupe arrived to bring a smile to the youngsters’ faces.
Performers from the charity Music in Hospitals visited Richard House Children’s Hospice in Richard House Drive, Beckton, last Thursday to play a set for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.
The band, called City Bells, played a number of classic tunes that all the little ones would recognise such as the Simpsons and the Pink Panther theme songs.
Shay Tousi, trust and corporate fundraiser for Music in Hospitals, said: “Music makes such a difference to children’s lives and it is wonderful to see the impact live music has on children with disabilities.
“Thanks to Help a Capital Child’s project we are able to bring the pleasure of music to the children at Richard House.”

Neil Williamson, transition service coordinator at Richard House, said: “Music is a very important aspect of a multi-sensory experience for children with multiple disabilities, so it was great to have Music in Hospitals come to Richard House and thank you to City Bells for their lively set.”
