ONE of London's oldest and most prestigious concert venues is supporting a children's hospice charity for another year running.
Staff at The Olympia will raise money for Demelza Hospice Care for Children, which looks after seriously ill children from Bromley and Bexley.
To celebrate, staff and contractors from the venue visited the Eltham Hospice to present a cheque for £6,000 raised from a quiz night.
Area fundraising manager James Hunt said: "Without the support of Olympia parts of our new hospice would have been delayed and the service would not now be ready to open."
The money has been used to pay for the birds nest swing in the hospice's new playground and one of the bathrooms in a parent's suite.
In total Olympia have raised nearly £12,200 in two years.
