Green Fingers for Cheeky Rascals Team

The team at Cheeky Rascals were delighted to support their local community this month with a volunteering day at Hampshire based charity, Naomi House & Jacksplace.

n preparation for the charity’s moving ‘remembering weekend,’ the Cheeky Rascals team spent a day volunteering in the gardens of Naomi House. Working tirelessly to clean, trim, prune and organise the space, it was quickly transformed into a sanctuary for local families. The annual ‘remembering weekend’ run by Naomi House, offers an opportunity for bereaved families to meet each other, share experiences and create life-long friendships. 

Naomi House & Jacksplace provide expert hospice care to life-limited and life-threatened children, young people and extended families. Delivering vital emotional, spiritual and developmental aspects of care for families across seven counties in Southern England including Hampshire, the inspiring charity cares for more than 440 families each year.

Nursery distributor, Cheeky Rascals has been supporting Naomi House & Jacksplace for 2 years and this year’s volunteering day marked what is now becoming an annual activity in the Cheeky Rascals diary.

Lisa Congdon, New Business Fundraiser at Naomi House & Jacksplace said: “It was great to have the Cheeky Rascals team back again this year to volunteer and help prepare the gardens ahead of our remembering weekend. The team were amazing and did a brilliant job, giving up their time to ensure that families can sit back, share memories and take time to remember in a peaceful, calming space.”

Selina Russell, Founder of Cheeky Rascals added “Naomi House & Jacksplace truly makes a difference in the lives of local families in Hampshire. As a local business, it seems only right that we do all we can to show our support for their invaluable work and help in any way we can. We had another fantastic day this year volunteering at Naomi House and will continue to support the charity’s great work - we just hope our gardening skills were up to scratch!”
