TWO racing cars have been donated to a children’s hospice from a charity.

Naomi House, near Winchester, received the gifts from The Finlay Foundation.

The hospice helps children suffering from life-threatening illnesses and their families – including those from the Portsmouth area.

The cars, which travel at 15 miles per hour, will be used on a special racetrack that is being designed in the Jacks’ Place garden.

Adrian Redshaw, a play team member at the hospice, said: ‘Everyone is very excited that we have two brand new cars to race around the track at Jacksplace.

‘The fact they are easy to use for the children with muscular conditions means this really will lead to endless hours of fun for everyone at Naomi House. Thank you very much to everyone at the Finlay Foundation.’

The foundation was set up in memory of Wiltshire lad Finlay Connor, who died aged six after being hit by a bus outside his school last year.
