A Woodford Green children’s hospice has wished good luck to its ambassador Rochelle Humes, who will present the BBC’s Children in Need appeal on Friday.

Rochelle, who grew up in Upminster, is a long time supporter of Haven House Children’s Hospice, in High Road, and became an ambassador for the charity in May 2015.

The TV star has visited Haven House many times, met with children and parents and donated items to the hospice’s four charity shops.

She has presented BBC’s Children in Need for a number of years and also with the late Sir Terry Wogan.

Rochelle will be joined by husband Marvin and fellow presenters Graham Norton, Tess Daly, Greg James and Ade Adepitan.

Rochelle said: “I will never forget the amazing experience of presenting Children in Need with Sir Terry Wogan.

“Children in Need is truly one of the highlights of my year and I can’t wait for this year’s show.”

Haven House chief executive Mike Palfreman said: “We wish Rochelle and Marvin the very best of luck presenting this year’s Children in Need appeal.

“Rochelle has supported our hospice for many years and has spent time meeting with families.

“Our celebrity ambassadors play a crucial role in helping to raise awareness of Haven House and we always appreciate their time and commitment.”
