With horses, pigs and rabbits at Richard House Children's Hospice, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were at a farm.

The animals were special visitors to the Beckton hospice this week, where children could meet and hold the creatures.

There was also the chance to walk miniature horse Applause and get a kiss from daschund Pickles.

Smiya Ahmed, play specialist at Richard House, said: “We’re so thankful for the Alamanda Therapy Animals for coming to see us.

“It was such a great opportunity for the children and young adults to be able to experience these animals because they just respond so beautifully to them.”
