Politicians and councillors will be sharing what they would like to do before they die as part of a charity initiative.
They are among a number of people taking part in a campaign for Richard House Children's Hospice, which is encouraging people to write down one thing they want to do before they die and stick it on a board in one of the charity's shops.
MPs Angela Watkinson, Andrew Rosindell, Jon Cruddas, and Barking And Dagenham deputy council leader Rocky Gill will be visiting the charity's shop to add their wishes.
The scheme is part of Dying Matters Week, which runs from May 14 to 20, which aims to change attitudes towards death, dying and bereavement, and is organised by the Dying Matters Coalition.
Richard House shops which will be displaying messages include Romford, Barking, Station Road and Elm Park both in Hornchurch, Upminster, and Dagenham.
The shops raise funds for Richard House Children's Hospice, which supports children and young people with life-threatening conditions or complex healthcare needs.
