TV stars of the small screen will be out in force for a children’s charity event this Sunday.

Actor Gary Lucy, TOWIE’s Debbie Douglas and model Casey Batchelor will attend Haven House Children’s Hospice’s summer fayre where more than 1,000 people are expected.

Organisers promise a day of fun and excitement with a Blues Brothers tribute band - Jailhouse Blues Brothers - set to entertain the crowd with a storming set of soul classics.

Debbie, a Woodford Green resident, said: “I can’t wait for this year’s Haven House Summer Fayre.

“I came last year and it was so much fun. It’s a great event for the community and raises much needed funds for the hospice.”

Children will be able to enjoy trampolines, a pirate ship themed playground and bouncy castles along with delicious food and a barbeque.

Adults will be able to enjoy a Pimms station and stalls selling clothing and toys, including items from the charity’s four shops.

The charity’s chief executive, Mike Palfreman said: “Our summer fayre is a key highlight in our calendar and we always look forward to opening up our prized grounds for a day of fun and excitement.

“We are delighted that several of our celebrity supporters, including our patron Gary Lucy, will be attending this year’s event and we hope it raises an excellent amount for the hospice.”

There is a suggested entry donation of £2 to the event in the charity’s grounds in High Road, Woodford Green, with under threes entering free. Doors open 11am to 5pm.
