A children’s hospice has teamed up with three others for the return of the East London Bubble Rush.

Haven House Children’s Hospice, Woodford, will attend the 5k run at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Over a thousand children and adults will take part in the event as they make their way through the route while sprayed with foam and bubbles.

Jaycee Wharfe, a nursey nurse from Enfield uses Haven House for her two-year-old son, Finnley.

Jaycee said: “Haven House has made a tremendous difference to Finnley and taking part in the Bubble Rush is my way of saying thank you for all the support my family has received.

“Finnley has Holoprosencephaly, a rare genetic condition resulting in incomplete brain development.

“Everyone at Haven House always ask how Finnley is doing and it’s the little things like being offered tea and coffee at reception before he starts his therapy which makes us feel so welcome.

“Haven House is such a special place to my little family. The staff are so friendly and couldn’t be more helpful. I really hope more people in the local area can support the charity.”

All funds raised for the run is to be divided equally between Haven House, Saint Francis Hospice, Richard House Children’s Hospice and St Joseph’s Hospice.

Event Manager at Haven House, Katie Tyler said: “We are delighted that Jaycee is taking part in the Bubble Rush and we hope to see even more participants at this year’s event.

“It promises to be a colourful, fun-filled day with plenty of foam and funds raised will help us support more families like Jaycee and Finnley.”
