Kiki is an international cabaret star best known in the UK for her appearances on ITV’s The Voice UK, and All Together Now on the BBC.
In 2007, Kiki’s son Dexter passed away at Derian House aged one month and three days.
Kiki is now a Patron of the charity and founder of the Keepsake Circle, the project that works with bereaved families to create songs using their favourite memories and stories.
Kiki said: “When my husband and I made our way through the doors of Derian House we knew our lives had changed forever, but we had no idea that this inspiring place would end up being a part of us forever.
“On that first visit when we had to confront our son Dexter’s condition head on, we literally had no idea what to expect from this place. We found out that it was far from the terrifying place we imagined but, rather, an incredibly positive place.
“Our son Dexter William Robinson was born with Zellweger Syndrome, a metabolic condition, on September 12, 2007. He died in our arms at Derian House on October 15.
“Derian House holds a very special place in my heart, and I’ve always had a deep desire to find a way to thank them for all they did for me and my family. I also want to help them to help families like mine never be alone in the unique and individual challenges that parents of children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions face every day.
“Being asked to be a Patron has been one of the most overwhelming and humbling experiences of my life. It’s been my dream since Dexter died, and is an honour and responsibility that I take very seriously.
“Derian House is the only place where I have always been just Dexter’s Mummy. Its place in my heart is forever and always. I’m looking forward to celebrating 30 years of an incredible hospice.”
