Ray Winstone among stars at Haven House hospice in Woodford Green as ITV1’s Daybreak visit

A children’s hospice was featured on morning television on Friday to raise awareness of Children’s Hospice Week.

Haven House had an early start when presenter Gethin Jones and the crew from ITV1’s Daybreak broadcast live from its grounds in High Road, Woodford Green.

Despite the time, there was a real party atmosphere, with children’s entertainers and Johnny from The X Factor providing the fun for the children and families who use Haven House.

There were also a number of children and parents from Avon House Preparatory School in Woodford Green, who turned up to lend their support.

Local celebrities were also in attendance, including actors Ray Winstone, Gary Lucy and Vicki Michelle and celebrity trainer Kevin Adams.
