POMPEY legend Linvoy Primus will be opening a new charity shop that will help terminally-ill children.

The footballer will be unveiling the new Naomi House Charity Shop in The Boulevard, Waterlooville.

The outlet is the 11th Naomi House shop to be opened and as well as generating funds for the charity, will also provide a focal point for local fundraisers and supporters.

The hospice, in Winchester, cares for sick children and their families and costs £5m every year to run – with 90 per cent of the cost being met by donations.

Martin Efford, retail manager, said: ‘I have been looking for a shop in Waterlooville for some time and am delighted to have found such a good site.

‘The shop is bright and spacious and in an ideal location close to the Dukes Walk shops and car parking. The people of Havant and Waterlooville have always been incredibly supportive of Naomi House.’

The shop will open at 10.30am next Wednesday and Havant’s Deputy Mayor, Gerald Shimbart, will be there.
