Joan Collins brings Christmas cheer to families at a charity breakfast

Hollywood legend Joan Collins OBE brought some much needed Christmas cheer to families supported by children's hospice Shooting Star Chase this morning at an exclusive breakfast at Selfridges in Oxford Street.

The actor joined families with tea, muffins, pastries and other goodies in The Corner Restaurant in Selfridges' flagship store on Oxford Street.

The shop also arranged a surprise visit from Father Christmas who will hand out personalised gifts to the children.

Miss Collins organised the event as part of her patronage of Shooting Star Chase, a children hospice caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.

The breakfast is the latest in a series of generous activities Miss Collins has put on for the charity.

She regularly donates clothes from her personal wardrobe to the charity's retail shops and has appeared on Celebrity Deal or No Deal and Celebrity Who wants to be a Millionaire to raise money for the charity.
