WOMEN working at London City Airport dropped by neighbouring Richard House Children's Hospice in Beckton to deliver a cheque for more than £1,500.

A team of 15 girls from the airport took part in the challenge in the annual Adidas Women's 5km Challenge Hyde Park last month as a part of their support for the hospice.

Four of them, Mandy Shevlin, Carly Wieczorek, Jenny Skinner and Dionne Crouch, dropped into Richard House this week with the cheque that will help pay for outings for the children to the London Zoo, London Bridge and other tourist attractions.

Richard House needs £1.8 million a year to stay open and relies on voluntary donations.

Richard House run a number of events around London. Details by phone on 020-7540 0204, or email keertip@richardhouse.org.uk
