West Ham United to raise awareness and funds for Richard House this Saturday

It’s with great excitement we announce that this weekend’s West Ham United Premier League match against Crystal Palace is raising awareness and funds for Richard House.

West Ham United captain Mark Noble is a Patron of the hospice and has supported it for many years, having lived just a few streets away as a child. He said: “The Richard House Children’s Hospice is a charity very close to my heart, and the respect and admiration I have for the work they do to help seriously ill children in East London has just grown and grown over the years.

“It makes me extremely proud that West Ham do everything we possibly can to support the charity and it is fantastic that we are able to dedicate Saturday’s game for their benefit. I’d urge all West Ham supporters to give whatever they can afford to help Richard House this weekend. Any donation will be gratefully accepted and go towards making a huge difference.”

West Ham United players will be wearing t-shirts supporting the charity and encouraging donations as they warm up on Saturday, and there will be plenty of opportunities to learn more about the hospice and donate via text message throughout the match.

Two young children who use the services of the hospice have been invited to be team mascots on the day, and will walk out to the pitch with the Hammers stars.

There are plenty of ways to support Richard House. You can donate £5.00 to Richard House by texting RHCH02 £5 to 70070, or take part in a Swimathon event next month at the London Aquatics Centre next door to London Stadium. Find out more at www.richardhouse.org.uk/event/swimathon2017
