A children’s hospice has launched a campaign to celebrate 15 years of helping children and teenagers suffering from life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

Haven House in High Road, Woodford Green has helped hundreds of children and teenagers across east London since it was founded in 2003 by nurse Sue Irwin.

Staff have teamed up with Galliard Homes for the #Team15 campaign which encourages support for the hospice through 15 different ways.

Bike rides, marathons and Tough Mudder challenges will be held over the next 12 months and people are encouraged to host tea parties in aid of the hospice,

People are also asked to volunteer at the hospice or one of its five charity shops.

The campaign’s Mission 365 challenge aims to attract support from businesses by getting 365 companies to each raise £1,135 over the course of a year, which can pay for one night's care for a child at the hospice.

Mike Palfreman, Chief Executive of Haven House, said: “There has never been a better time to get involved with Haven House than in our 15th birthday year.

“Since opening our doors we have provided palliative and holistic care to over 900 children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

“Through Team 15 we are highlighting all the excellent ways you can help us support even more families over the next 15 years.

“Whether that’s through a donation, leaving a legacy, volunteering, attending an event or pledging to raise funds for us – everyone can be part of Team15.”

A summer fair to celebrate the hospice’s 15th birthday celebration will take place on July 1.
