Haven House Patron and Woodford Green resident, Gary Lucy, appeared on ITV1’s Big Star’s Little Star tonight (Wednesday 2nd April) and won a whopping £15,000 for the children’s hospice.

The fun game-show, which sees celebrities answer questions alongside their little ones, featured Gary with his 8-year-old daughter, India.

Talking about his win for the charity, Gary said; ‘The hospice is very important to all my family; I’m a patron and my fiancée is a paediatric nurse there, so we try to do all we can to offer our support.’  He continues; ‘Being able to get our daughter involved and helping to raise funds and awareness was extra special and I’m delighted to have won so much for this vital local service.’

Mike Palfreman, Chief Executive of Haven House added; ‘This really was a super win for Haven House and as ever we are extremely grateful to Gary for his support of the charity.  Our local celebrity network is vital in helping us to raise  funds and awareness, both locally and nationally, and we are very lucky to have such great support.’
