The red carpet was rolled out at a children’s hospice when its young film-makers were presented with special Oscars.

The day care area of east London’s Richard House hospice in Beckton staged its annual glitzy Hollywood-style awards at the weekend to reward the work of young members of its Living Films project.

The project for children and young adults who use the hospice and their brothers and sisters teaches them how to make their own movies and gives them skills like model-making, animation and script writing as well as a voice to tell their own stories to the world.

The films they made were shown on a big screen, followed by the awards for best editor, best director and best script-writer.

The cameras and other film-making equipment came from the Lifelites charity, which provides technology to children’s hospices around the country.
