THE wall separating the children’s and young people’s hospices at Naomi House has been removed.

The charity’s patron Alastair Stewart visited the hospice near Winchester to smash down the barrier parting the two blocks.

Instead a bridge will join the two sites, which is being put in as part of the Caterpillar Appeal refurbishment project.

Mr Stewart said: ‘This really is a magical moment for us because Jacksplace and Naomi House are both part of the same wonderful dream of making things better for people who are having a really tough time of it.’

The charity needs to raise more than £4m to fund the full range of improvements planned as part of the appeal.

Construction work will finish in September and so far £3.2m 
has been raised towards the appeal.
