YOUNG SOLES ANNOUNCES CHARITY PARTNERSHIP WITH RICHARD HOUSE, LONDON’S FIRST CHILDREN’S HOSPICE

YOUNG SOLES ANNOUNCES CHARITY PARTNERSHIP WITH RICHARD HOUSE, LONDON’S FIRST CHILDREN’S HOSPICE

Young Soles, the award-winning luxury children’s footwear brand, has announced a charity partnership with Richard House Children’s Hospice, which supports children and their families to lead as happy a life as possible when dealing with a life-limiting health condition.

The partnership will see Young Soles donate shoes to the hospice twice a year, as well as providing support for fundraising and volunteering activities to help the hospice reach its £3.5 million fundraising target for 2018/19.


Based in East London, Richard House first opened its doors in 2000 as London’s first children’s hospice. The vision of its founder and president, Anthea Hare, was to create somewhere which was both a safe space for children living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition and a support network for their families. Today Richard House supports around 300 children and their families.

Young Soles’ Founder, Louise Shill, comments on the partnership, “Initially, we were looking for a charity partner that was both local and which sat well with our brand ethos. As London’s first children’s hospice, Richard House was the obvious choice. They’re based just a stones throw from us, but more importantly they’re making a huge difference to the lives of so many children in our local community. I’m thrilled that we can support the hospice, and even more delighted that our shoes will bring smiles to the faces of these children, their families and everyone who works at the hospice.”

Head of Corporate Engagements and Partnerships at Richard House, Helena Burley, adds, “From the moment a child is diagnosed with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, everything changes. And these changes affect the whole family, which is why we feel it is vital to provide not only care to the child, but support to the whole family as well. To provide this support our services range from specialised residential clinical care, to art, music and dance therapy, giving the child the opportunity to explore what is happening to them in a safe environment, sessions to enable a child with sensory needs to communicate through sound, to end of life care with pre and post bereavement support for all the family. Our thanks go to Young Soles for supporting our families with gifts of their wonderful children’s shoes and baby boots.”
