Lance Corporal Richard Jones, the only magician to ever win Britain’s Got Talent, popped in to the Metrogas Sports Club in New Eltham on Sunday 30 June to entertain some of our children and families in honour of our Eltham hospice’s 10th anniversary.
The Care team organised a fantastic summer party with families making the most of the warm weather, enjoying a performance by a Royal Mail choir, and circus entertainers, whilst relaxing in the gardens with tea, cakes and a BBQ. Police horses and a local fire engine also dropped by and Demelza’s fantastic team of volunteers ran a tombola, raffle and plant stall.
Richard Jones performed a spectacular routine to an enthusiastic audience, enthralling children and adults alike with his sleight of hand and spent time with the children individually, entertaining them with his magic tricks. Richard, Ambassador for Together for Short Lives, the UK charity for seriously ill children, said “I’ve had a lovely afternoon spending time with such a responsive crowd, thank you very much to Demelza for inviting me along.”
