Naomi House at Crookhorn College Care Day

We were so excited to be invited along to Crookhorn College and speak to the students about Naomi House & Jacksplace as a part of their Care Day.

After a warm welcome from Mr McGinley, we carried out five separate presentations to 225 students all about the care we offer, how we provide for local families and how they could help via our Young Ambassadors Programme (YAP).

We then challenged the students to come up with their own fundraising events. They had some brilliant ideas, including a tutu and crazy hair fun run, swimming the Isle of Wight, trampolining down the high street and even a charity laser quest!

The school has also made us their Charity of the Year and have been doing lots of fundraising, so we were so delighted and thankful to receive a cheque for £1,250!

Thank you to everyone at Crookhorn College for your hospitality and excellent fundraising ideas, you may have come up with the next Naomi House & Jacksplace event... so watch this space!
