Parents, children and staff alike were delighted when James McVey from popular band The Vamps came to visit. He dropped by on his way back to London, after spending Christmas with his family in Dorset. Having grown up in the local area, James attended Corfe Hills School who have a strong relationship with Julia's House and regularly raise money for the hospice.
The Vamps star enjoyed a tour of the hospice before happily chatting to parents and staff and meeting some of the children who were in for the 'mini-mates' hospice session.
James said 'We would drive past Julia's House nearly every day, and I knew all about the work they did through school but I'd never been inside. I had such a lovely morning, incredible children, staff and sanctuary'.
