Tennis ace Tim Henman paid a visit to Naomi House & Jacksplace to discover more about the inspiring work of the children’s charity near Winchester.
Joined by his wife, Lucy, Tim was representing The Tim Henman Foundation, a charity that organises programmes to better the lives of disadvantaged young people, focusing on education, health and welfare.
The couple were joined by Richard Garrett and Kathryn Hamlet from The Foundation, and spent time touring the state of the art facilities and meeting children, young people and their families.
During the tour Tim, Lucy and their colleagues tried out the charity’s new sensory room and music therapy suite, and also visited the hydrotherapy pool, gardens and spiritual spaces.
The group also spent time in the dedicated spaces for post-bereavement care, and heard about the support that Naomi House & Jacksplace offers families at the end of a child or young person’s life.
Tim commented: “Lucy and I were so impressed with every aspect of our visit to Naomi House & Jacksplace. The quality of dedicated care that can be delivered through the excellent facilities and the amazing staff is outstanding. The whole feel of Naomi House & Jacksplace is one of being an extension to the child or young person’s home and family. My Foundation is keen to support this charity’s wonderful endeavours.”
