Imelda Staunton at Richard House hospice, which is she is supporting


Two well-known actors have put their support behind the East End’s children hospice.

Imelda Staunton, best known for her roles in the Harry Potter series and Vera Drake, and her husband, Downton Abbey star Jim Carter, are backing fundraising campaign Harry’s Million for Richard House children’s hospice.

In a series of short movies filmed especially for the hospice the pair talk about their life-changing moments.

It is hoped the films will give the campaign, started by hospice user Harry Singh, 24, enough publicity to reach the £1m milestone.
