Team Naomi at the Southampton Marathon!

The first Southampton Marathon for three decades took place on Sunday (23rd April) and Naomi House & Jacksplace were proud to be there to support our fantastic runners!

The ABP Southampton Half Marathon, 10k and full Marathon saw thousands of people descend on Southampton City Centre and run past iconic local landmarks including the Bargate, QE2 Anchor and St Mary’s Stadium.

Team Naomi had 11 fantastic runners, who have collectively raised over £2,000 for our hospices! That’s enough to fund a days nursing care for 12 children receiving respite.


Thank you to our amazing volunteers who helped cheer them on too!

New Business Development Fundraiser for Naomi House & Jacksplace, Lisa Congdon, was part of our cheer squad! She said:

The Southampton Marathon was a fantastic day! We saw so many wonderful fundraisers, all with a smile on their face despite the gruelling challenge. They did so well and raised a fantastic amount for our hospices – thank you!
