Music festival fun at Demelza
The festival feel was brought to Demelza when the second TIZ Muzik Festival took place.

Twelve young people who are supported by Demelza’s services in Kent and South East London enjoyed music from Jamie Johnson (finalist in the Voice), singer Joe West who also appeared in The Voice, singer songwriter Ebonie G, and bands Glass Houses, Old Town Souls and The Kick Backs.

Each young person went home with a commemorative programme, a t-shirt, a cap, a lanyard and a goodie bag.

A marquee was put up in the grounds of the children’s hospice in Bobbing and the `festival goers’ enjoyed pizzas, burgers, fish and chips and doughnuts.

Friends cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats
Two friends are undertaking a 960 mile cycle ride to raise money for Demelza.

Tony Savage from Herne Bay and Peter Yarlett from Whitstable are cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats starting on 8th August with an average of 70 miles a day over two weeks.

Tony will celebrate his 60th birthday while they are away and Peter his 62nd.

The duo are both members of Canterbury Harriers and wanted to do something different for a local charity. Peter, Club Chairman, said: “Canterbury Harriers support Demelza through our annual Whitstable 10K running race and Tony and I want to add our individual efforts to fundraising for Demelza’s unique contribution to local children and their families”.

And they're off.... Our Demelza 101 cyclists head for Paris

And they’re off…. 100 cyclists set off for Paris this morning (April 30th) as part of the first Demelza 101 challenge.

The riders left Demelza House in Sittingbourne at 8.30am at the start of the 270 mile challenge to France’s capital to raise funds for Demelza Hospice Care for Children.

They will be cycling around 70 miles a day, finishing under the Eiffel Tower on May 3rd in the same year of the 101th Tour de France.

The team is made up of Demelza family members, keen cyclists, corporate supporters and Demelza staff. They range from those who are used to cycling long distances to those who hadn’t got on a bike for years before starting training.

Over the past 12 months the Demelza 101 team have been raising sponsorship money by holding events including cake sales, quiz nights and curry nights. The event has already raised more than £100,000 which could pay for two nurses and one care assistant for a year, a day’s care at our Eltham hospice, a day’s care at our Sittingbourne hospice and a day care’s in East Sussex.
