Oxford's Helen House hospice reopens after £1.5m revamp

A children's hospice, thought to be the world's oldest, has reopened following a major refurbishment.

Helen House, in Oxford, was reopened by actor Tom Hollander after £1.5m of works were carried out.

The money was used for a play and holistic area and plumbed-in oxygen at the home, which cares for children with life-limiting conditions.

It is the first major work at the home since it opened in 1982. It was closed temporarily in November.
