Have your say

A NEW chief executive will take over the reins at a childrens’ hospice.

Naomi House, near Winchester, which helps children and families from the Portsmouth area, has appointed Chris Robinson.

He will take over from current chief executive Ray Kipling, who retires this month.

Chris, who has previously been chief executive of The Mayor’s Fund for London and ran various UK charities for 12 years, says he is looking forward to his new role.

He said: ‘I’m delighted to be joining a charity as highly regarded as Naomi House and working for the wonderful children, young people and families cared for at the house.

‘Ray has driven the hospice on a journey of real change and progress.

‘I look forward to continuing that journey.’
