Special 'Posh' Coffee Morning!
In aid of Naomi House Children's Hospice
Saturday 13th June 10am -12noon in the church
Boys' Brigade Junior Section and Anchor Boys will be running another of their special coffee mornings (with cake!) at which the junior boys will wait at the tables.
We have decided to support Naomi House and Jack's Place as our Charity this year. They are hospices that support families from seven counties in southern England — Hampshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Surrey, West Sussex and the Isle of Wight. They offer a full palliative care service that includes respite, emergency and end of life care for life-limited and life-threatened children and young adults from birth and into their later years.
Naomi House is a purpose built children's hospice that provides a homely environment to children and young people with life-limiting conditions. They provide individualised specialist care and much needed respite for the whole family, enabling them to feel refreshed, rested and supported through the good days, difficult days and last days.
Jacksplace is their hospice for 16 years and upwards and has been specifically designed to meet the needs of young adults. It is the only purpose built hospice for teenagers and young adults in our region, and gives life-limited young people the privacy and dignity they crave.
Each year they need to raise £7million. They receive less than 10% of their income from Government. The support they receive from individuals, groups, businesses and trusts means that the can provide care and support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, free of charge, when children, young adults and their families from our region, need it most.
We hope you'll all come and bring friends and family to the coffee morning, enjoy a chat and support this charity.
