Residents set to enjoy live entertainment and more at Woodford Green hospice’s summer fayre

16:40 18 June 2014

A children’s hospice is set to hold its summer fayre.

Haven House will open its doors to residents on July 6 and host a variety of activities.

The hospice provides specialist care for children who have life limiting conditions and who are unlikely to reach adulthood.

However, it is a place for children to live as fully as they possibly can.

The event, taking place at the hospice’s base in High Road, Woodford Green, will feature live entertainment including a local pop choir and other singers.

For tennis fans there will be a live screening of the Wimbledon final and activities for children will include a bouncy castle, trampolines and a pirate ship playground.

Mike Palfreman, chief executive of Haven House, said: “The summer fayre will have a different feel this year, bringing a bit of the festival scene to Woodford Green.

“It looks set to be a fun day out for local families, and in turn, raises vital funds to help support local life-limited children and their families.”

Entry is £2 minimum and organisers are currently looking for volunteers to help on the day.

For more information on the fayre or volunteering, please email events@havenhouse.org.uk or call 020 8506 3637.
