The event also marked the official start of the Capital Appeal to raise funds for this vital new service for children and families in the area.
There are an estimated 1700 children with life-limiting illnesses within the area that Demelza cover and 780 are in the South London area alone.
The Capital Appeal will be asking for fund raising support from all areas of the South London community. Demelza relies almost entirely on fundraising and with the services already provided costing over £7,000 a day, extending those services will need the help of local companies, local groups and the individuals in the community.
Anyone wanting to get involved in the project should contact the Capital Appeal Office at 1 Wensley Close, London, SE9 5AB T: 0208 859 7766 or visit Demelza’s website by clicking here.
