On Monday, Kate will be visiting the Naomi House Children’s Hospice, a children’s respite care facility in Hampshire. Naomi House provides support to families of children living with limiting conditions through respite stays, hospice, and emergency support. Kate will tour the facilities and attend a tea party with some of the children staying at Naomi House and their families.
While she is there, 18-year-old Ollie Wade will be performing a song he wrote as a final farewell to his brother called “Free.” Ollie’s older brother Ben had cerebral palsy and would often visit the Naomi House. Ben loved the Naomi House’s hydrotherapy pools and gardens. Ollie praises the Naomi House for its empathetic staff and for understanding the needs of both Ben and Ben’s family.
Ollie released the single on April 26 in honor of Children’s Hospice Week, which runs from April 26 to May 3. Kate’s attendance of the official performance of the song will serve as a way to better publicize the single. Ollie’s single “Free” is available on iTunes for $0.99 and all profits from the single will go directly to the Naomi House.
