James has been tweeting his fundraising efforts to his followers on social networking site, Twitter, saying; “£10,000 for Haven House Children’s Hospice! Can you believe it ...I delivered when it seemed impossible.”

Mike Palfreman, chief executive at the hospice, said: “We are most grateful to James and the Argent family for raising this fantastic amount – what a brilliant way to kick-off our tenth birthday year.”

Since 2003, Haven House has been providing specialist care for children and young people as well as a range of support for families, including day, short break and end-of-life care.
