Fundraising News: Naomi House funds reach record £2.4m

Naomi House Children's Hospice raised a record £2.4m last year - its fourth consecutive annual increase.

The charity plans to use the additional income to expand its fundraising and trading capacity.

Direct fundraising accounted for the bulk of the charity's income, with just under £2m raised through third-party fundraising from golfing, sailing and other local events.

Hugh Thompson, fundraising manager, attributed the charity's fundraising success to a drive to raise the charity's profile in the area where it operated, pointing out that 80 per cent of the charity's income is raised around Winchester. Thompson said that as a direct result of the extra income, the charity would be adding to its fundraising and trading teams.

The Wessex Children's Hospice Trust, which fundraises for Naomi House, opened its sixth charity shop in Winchester at the beginning of April, and is now recruiting an events co-ordinator.
