A children’s hospice will be laying on a host of fun activities for families on Sunday morning.
Face painting, film-making, a sensory area as well as art and computer games will be available at Richard House Children’s Hospice in Beckton.
The hospice will be throwing open its doors to the local community as part of this year’s Children’s Hospice Week celebrations, beginning April 26.
The fun day is an event for anyone who has ever wondered about the services provided at Richard House, giving them an opportunity to ask questions of staff members and have a look at the purpose-built hospice, which was the first children’s hospice in London.
Children’s Hospice Week (April 26- May 3) is the UK’s only awareness and fundraising week for children’s hospices services. It is co-ordinated by Together for Short Lives, the leading UK charity for all children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions and all those who support, love and care for them.
