Met commissioner drops in to Demelza Eltham hospice

London's top cop met youngsters at an Eltham hospice to help the charity mark its fifth birthday.

The Commissioner of the Met Police Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe received a tour of Demelza's facility on May 22.

Demelza has been treating life-limited and life-threatened children from Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich and Lewisham at its six-bed hospice for the past five years.

Greenwich police have recently raised money for the hospice in Wensley Close and a thank you card plus a piece of artwork were presented to Sir Bernard by some of the children.

He said: "I am so pleased I visited - this is a place of hope, love and care for children, young people and their families - when they most need it.

"I was impressed and moved and we should do all we can to support them."
