Spiderman and Avengers star Tom Holland delighted children with a visit to Kingston Hospital.

Tom, who was born at the hospital and grew up locally, took time out from his busy schedule for an exclusive event arranged by charity Momentum for the children and parents it supports.

Momentum Children's Charity provides support for children with cancer or other life-limiting conditions.

The Brother’s Trust, which was set up by Tom and his three brothers, selected Momentum Children’s Charity as one of their chosen causes.

Explaining why they chose to support Momentum; Tom said: “They have such a passion for what they do and what they want to achieve.

"They are there for the whole journey and the entire family, for as long as they need them.

"Through the Brother’s Trust I wanted to help a local charity working in the area where I was born and bred.

"Our fundraising has already helped fund their Family Support Worker programme and Music Therapy Sessions.

"It was fantastic to meet some of the children today and also see the charity’s latest hospital refurbishments.”

Sarah Shade, Matron for Children and Young People at Kingston Hospital; said: “It was great to show Tom around the Paediatric Unit of the hospital, the children absolutely loved meeting him and it really made their day.

"We have worked with Momentum Children’s Charity for many years and it’s a partnership we really value. Hopefully Tom will be back to visit again in the future”.

Children at the event on Friday, June 1, also delighted Tom by giving him presents and singing Happy Birthday in honour of his birthday on June 1.
