A special celebrity guest attended the annual summer family fun day for a Northfleet-based hospice.

Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins turned out at EllenorLions Hospice in Coldharbour Road on Friday (August 15).

She is a patron of chYps, which is a part of the hospice focusing on the care of seriously ill children.

The event featured an animal therapy session with Almanda Therapy Animals and a turn from puppeteer and ventriloquist Steve Hewlett, who has appeared on Britain’s Got Talent.

There were arts and craft activities throughout the day and a visit by Eynsford bird centre Eagle Heights’ famous Birdman.

EllenorLions communications manager Tessa Youens said: “It was a lovely day.

“We had about 60 people. The whole point was to give families a bit of respite, a chance to have a nice day out and interact with each other.

“We had lots of laughter and lots of happy faces.”
