Fun in the sun for families

15 August 2016
Fifteen families from across South East London enjoyed fun in the sun at Demelza's annual fun day in Eltham.

Children who receive care from the hospice, along with their parents and brothers and sisters, had the chance to get up close and personal with TV favourites Peppa Pig and Bob the Builder, as well as officers from London Fire Brigade and the Metropolitan Police, plus the region’s Search and Rescue dogs.

A whole host of events was organised by the charity’s staff and volunteers for the 85 visitors, including the ever-popular bouncy castle, hook-a-duck, a tombola, raffle and facepainting.

Giggle doctor Dr Geehee from Theodora Children’s Charity also provided entertainment at the event on Saturday (13 August).

Ann Fagg, Care Services Lead at SEL said: “It’s a chance for families who use our services to get together and enjoy the kind of fun and games other people might take for granted.”
