THREE friends from Hampshire hospice Naomi House & Jacksplace have been chosen as ambassadors for Chris Evans’ festival CarFest.

The renowned family-fundraising festival, which takes place at Laverstoke Park Farm and was founded by Chris Evans, is on a mission to #DoMoreGood and continue to make a difference to the lives of young children and their families across the UK.

All the festival’s attendees are directly helping create a positive impact, as a percentage of every ticket sold goes towards eight amazing charities - helping kids, teenages, and families up and down the country.

The family-fundraising festival has unveiled 11 individuals as the ‘Faces’ of this year's Do More Good Week initiative, with each one serving as a representative for one of the festival's eight charity partners.

Throughout this week from Monday, March 25 to Sunday, March 31, the chosen individuals have been opening up and sharing their impactful stories, providing festival-goers with a profound understanding of the real-life difference their attendance makes.

Representing Naomi House & Jacksplace, hospices for life-limited and life-threatened children and young adults from central Southern England, are Ebony, 25, from Bournemouth, Josh, 29 from Southampton, and Jamie, 28, from Gosport. Ebony, who was diagnosed with Ataxia Telangiectasia, and Josh and Jamie, who suffer from Duchenne muscular dystrophy, have all received remarkable care and unwavering support from the charity. 

Ebony said: “Jacksplace is basically a home from home. I made a roast dinner for the whole of Jacksplace. Thank you CarFest for supporting us - you rock!”
