Mayor of London Sadiq Khan praised the work of a Woodford Green charity at a City Hall reception.

Haven House Children's Hospice hosted the reception last Thursday, which was attended by charity staff and supporters, Mr Khan and others including charity patron Iain Duncan Smith MP.

Mr Khan described Haven House as an "extraordinary" facility, adding: "I am inspired by the commitment of Haven House staff who combine expertise with a strong sense of compassion and community, as well as the families and supporters I've met who are a fantastic example of what can be achieved when Londoners work together."

Charity chief executive Mike Palfreman said the hospice was thrilled its work was recognised by Mr Khan.
