TWO Hampshire residents will be heading to this year's CarFest to represent two charities.

CarFest, the family festival created by Chris Evans continues in its mission to 'Do More Good' by spreading the word about how the money raised from ticket sales to CarFest directly supports eight incredible charities, helping young people in the UK. 

Nine people in total are the ‘Faces’ of this year's Do More Good Campaign, each representing one of the eight charity partners who receive direct and life-changing funding from the festival. 

Josh, 28, from Hampshire represents Naomi House & Jacksplace, a hospice for children and young adults. Josh has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which is a muscle-wasting condition affecting every muscle in his body, including his heart. Josh’s condition means he has lost the ability to walk and he often feels weak. Jacksplace hospice supports Josh with respite stays and regular visits to the hospice’s Day Service programme.

The money that CarFest raises for Naomi House & Jacksplace will help provide care and support for young adults like Josh, and for the children and families who visit their hospices.

Josh stated: “I’m excited to have been invited to CarFest, it’s great that Chris Evans and the team at CarFest are helping to support local charities like Naomi House & Jacksplace, a charity I’ve been supported by since 1997. Jacksplace is special because there’s nowhere else like it nearby. When I visit Jacksplace, I know the nurses and the team there, it’s a familiar place where I can go and socialise, be independent and also get expert care and support. Thank you to CarFest for supporting Naomi House & Jacksplace, and I’m looking forward to seeing you at the festival!”

Isabelle who is just four and lives in Fleet will represent Rainbow Trust. Christina and Duncan are parents to four-year-old twins, Isabelle and Max, and six-year-old Jack. The twins were born prematurely at 24 weeks and required immediate medical attention from birth. Max made good progress and was discharged after four months; however, Isabelle’s needs were more serious and she remained in hospital for 10 and a half months before coming home. Isabelle was diagnosed with a condition called subglottic stenosis, requiring her to have a tracheostomy to help her breathe, and she now requires 24-hour care.
