The Big Gift Shake Up is back!

Join us this Christmas and show your support to Naomi House & Jacksplace's life limited and life threatened children and young adults this festive season.

The Big Gift Shake Up is a different way of giving – allowing the chance to buy raise money towards experiences for children and young adults that really make a difference, including time in our sensory room, a dip in the hydrotherapy pool, a day trip out, the chance for families to spend precious time together and vital medical care. 

Every year we are so grateful for the number of presents donated to us, however many of our children are unable to play with regular toys. Give a unique experience voucher this Christmas to make a lasting difference to our children and young adults on good days, difficult days and last days. Choose from a £10, £20, £50 or £100 experience voucher, which could go towards care, fun, space and friendship.

Thank you!

“We came back to Naomi House for Christmas – we couldn’t think of a better place. We had an amazing day with Chiara and we took her in the swimming pool – that is my lasting memory of Chiara, I will never forget that – the only time she could cuddle me was when we put her in the water and we placed her arms around me and I moved around the pool with her – there’s nothing more you want as a mother. You would’ve thought we were a normal family in that pool and I didn’t think that was possible at all.”

Chiara’s mum, Paola

You will not receive a physical gift voucher, but you will receive a lovely little thank you from our Supporter Services team, and maybe a cheeky video from the little ones at Naomi House! You can also be happy in knowing your donation has resulted in lots of fun, smiles and love this festive season at your local hospices.

"Christmas at Naomi House & Jacksplace is really magical. Toby can’t always play with regular toys but he absolutely loves to go swimming and experience the sensory room. For me, being able to leave him in the excellent care of the Naomi House nurses and carers and take a moment to relax a little, to recharge my batteries and prepare for the festive season is incredibly useful."

Toby's mum, Gemma
