Southern Water Charity Partnership

Southern Water is delighted to announce Naomi House & Jacksplace as its chosen charity for Hampshire.

The £10,000 pledge will go towards funding a project to renovate the our hydrotherapy pool, transforming it into a more sensory environment for children, young adults and their families, with bubble screens, coloured LED lights, image projectors and more. Southern Water will also be supporting us as part of a year-long partnership, with volunteering, event participation, promotional support and employee engagement.

Keith Wilson, Head of Marketing here at Naomi House and Jacksplace, said:

We are over the moon that Southern Water has chosen us as its Charity of the Year. The hydrotherapy pool refurbishment will make a huge difference to our children, young adults and their families; providing an enhanced sensory experience, combining music, sensory and hydro therapies all under one roof.

Beverley Thompson, Community Campaigns and Engagement Manager for Southern Water, said:

We are thrilled to be working with, and supporting, Naomi House & Jacksplace and their inspiring work with children, young adults and their families. A charity close to so many local people’s hearts, we look forward to helping with their plans to refurbish the hydrotherapy pool and install new equipment. The pool will help children with muscle conditions, stiff joints and limited movement to enjoy exercise and we hope the pool will provide a fun and interactive space for the children and their families.

We were chosen by Southern Water employees as part of an ongoing drive to support local causes close to the heart of the communities it serves. As well as raising vital funds, employees will also be lending their time and skills volunteering to help the hospices. Southern Water employees have already supported Naomi House & Jacksplace’s Hospice Open Day in September, where the company’s otter and vole mascots entertained crowds with high fives and photos.

We cannot wait to share photos of our new hydrotherapy pool with you!
