Surrey Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club chose to support Naomi House & Jacksplace through their annual Christmas luncheon event, which took place in December at the beautiful Kingswood Golf Club.

125 car enthusiasts attended the event, which featured a 5-course lunch, a charity raffle and auction, and a short talk led by our Governance Lead Nurse, Jackie Collins, who delivered a powerful speech about her experience working at Naomi House & Jacksplace. The event raised an astonishing £6,200 for our hospices!

Tash Haji, Community Fundraiser at Naomi House & Jacksplace, said:

It was a brilliant day and lovely to meet so many generous people. We couldn’t be there for local life limited children, young adults and families without the help of our supporters. So, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in attendance for your kind support and thank you to the RREC-Surrey Section for selecting our charity for this event. We hope to work with you again soon.

“The Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club Surrey Section has been very pleased to have raised a total of £6,200 for Naomi House & Jacksplace at the club’s Christmas lunch, with a raffle and auction. All of the thanks goes to the generosity of its members and friends, and the hard work of the committee ably assisted on the day by Tash Haji and Jackie Collins, who sold more raffle tickets than any other recent event held by our club!


Everyone, whilst enjoying their carvery lunch, was serenaded by Sarah, the section’s singer. At the end of the lunch, Wayne, a registered falconer, gave an indoor display with his Harris Hawk, Rufus. Club members were extremely impressed by the dedication, motivation and hard work of Tash, Jackie and the staff of such a worthwhile charity that is Naomi House & Jacksplace. On behalf of the committee and members of the Surrey Section we wish you every success for the future.

Naomi House & Jacksplace nurse, Jackie, said:

I had a lovely day, and it was so nice to talk to people about the work we do here and get across how positive the hospice experience is for our service users, and even our staff. We have an amazing team at the hospices and it’s such a privilege to work with families, children and young people. But in all of that we sometimes miss the wider team, and so it was a great opportunity to go out and see a different side of the work that is equally important to the people at the heart of the charity. Without the fundraising team beavering away we wouldn’t have the finances in place to offer the care that we deliver.
