BROTHERS and sisters of youngsters cared for at a children’s hospice were treated to a Christmas party.

The care team at Naomi House, in Winchester, hosted the party at the Victoria Hall, in Sutton Scotney.

More than 30 children aged between five and 11 went along.

They were entertained with party games and a visit from Santa Claus, who handed out presents.

Jenny Astall, siblings support worker, said: ‘The party was an opportunity for the kids to remember family and friends who may not be with us this Christmas.’
