London's first children's hospice has been supporting families since 2000 and continues to increase its services, reaching out to 300 young people across 12 London boroughs.


Former airport boss Richard Gooding closed down his long-serving charity last weekend - but not before handing over a £20,000 cheque to the Richard House Children's Hospice.

Gooding, until recently London City Airport's chief executive, called an end to the REG Charitable Trust at his 65th birthday party last weekend.

The band made sure Richard House Hospice was able to hold a collection outside the gig and it raised £2000 for its Show A Little Love appeal.
