Children at Demelza Hospice in Eltham were delighted to receive an 11kg, solid wood, rocking motorbike donated by Izabela Hailey of Green Owl Toys. The donation marked both the 10th anniversary of the Eltham Hospice and the 10th anniversary of Chislehurst-based Green Owl Toys in March 2019.
The hospice is marking its 10th anniversary with a programme of events running through the week. The hospice has been decorated, a timeline installed and celebrations including a children's party and cake cutting are scheduled.
Amy Thomas, community fundraiser at Demelza Hospice Care for Children, said: "A huge thank you to Izabela and Green Owl Toys for donating this beautiful rocking motorbike, the children will have great fun making use of this fantastic toy."
Izabela Hailey commented: "We are delighted to celebrate this anniversary together with such a well-loved children's organisation. We hope that this is a start to something special where we can support and enrich more children's lives together in the future."
