Lisa Snowden with Wolf Hazzard at the Shard

This morning a family who uses Richard House services had the chance to meet Capital FM hosts Lisa Snowdon and Dave Berry from a dizzying height at the top of the Shard.

The special radio broadcast was part of Global Radio’s Make Some Noise fundraising appeal, raising money for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK including the 53 children’s hospices which are members of the national charity Together for Short Lives.

Sara Hazzard, husband Peter, daughter Hannah and son Wolf (pictured with Lisa) watched the fundraiser which saw Lisa Snowdon having to clean the windows at the top of the Shard. One-year-old Wolf suffers from William Syndrome, a rare disorder that affects development. Wolf had open heart surgery at three months and has developed a rare and serious form of epilepsy. The family is supported by Richard House.

Sara said: “The experience was amazing. The whole family had a great time, it’s not easy when you are constantly dealing with hospitals and illness, but we love Richard House and the experience today created a lasting memory for us.”
