A HOSPICE that helps children with life-threatening illnesses from the Portsmouth area is set to get profits from a new business venture.

Naomi House, near Winchester, is the closest hospice to Portsmouth that provides care for children, young people and their families.

Now, an online photography business has been launched by 19-year-old Kate Mellor, of Berkshire, who had first-hand experience of the house.

The business provides digital images that can be printed on canvas.

A percentage of money raised from the firm will go to the hospice.

Chris Robinson, chief executive at Naomi House, said: ‘We’re delighted that Kate has chosen to use her phenomenal talent to raise money for Naomi House.

‘We wish her every success in this venture and will offer her all the support we can here at the hospice.’

To launch the business, Kate donated a large canvas piece to the charity.
