Kate visits Naomi House!

It may be her anniversary, but instead of eating bonbons and watching her wedding DVD (which is basically what I’m doing today), she is out bringing attention to a much-deserved charity. You may have read our article on Saturday about the special performance by Ollie Wade, whose brother often visited Naomi House.

From Naomi House’s website:

“Naomi House Children’s Hospice is delighted to announce that Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has chosen to visit Naomi House during Children’s Hospice Week.

During the visit The Duchess will tour our facilities including the hydrotherapy pool, children’s bedrooms and gardens. She will meet children, young people and families who rely on our service.

Following the tour, Her Royal Highness will take tea with brothers and sisters of children cared for at the hospice. She will then listen to a live performance of ‘Free’, a song written by a Naomi House sibling, Ollie Wade, as a tribute to his deceased brother. Ollie Wade has recently released his personal and moving song to raise money for us, and the track will be available to buy on iTunes.”

Kate enjoyed meeting the children and families, touring the facilities and sipping tea. The Duchess of Cambridge is not a royal patron of Naomi House, but rather of EACH. EACH works very closely with Naomi House and other local hospices to support these organizations, so they may thrive and succeed in healing. She really took her time to speak to children and families, showing just how much she cared.
