Have your say

THOUSANDS of people visited Naomi House children’s hospice to see its refurbishment and enjoy an open day.

The charity ran a fete and family fun day to raise funds and to show off the £4m refurbishment, which allows the team to provide a higher standard of care for children across the south of England.

The funds raised contributed towards the £7m needed annually to keep the hospice open.

Naomi House is Hampshire’s only children’s hospice offering care ranging from 24-hour life support to end-of-life care.

Mark Smith, chief executive of Naomi House & Jacksplace, said: ‘I’m delighted that so many people came to support us and look around our fantastic new hospice.

‘We’re totally dependent on the generosity of the community, so it is essential that we are visible in the and that people have the opportunity to see for themselves our facilities and the work we do.’
