NatWest Havant Super-heroes raise money for Naomi House and Jack's Place

Visitors to NatWest's Havant branch on Friday were in for quite a surprise as they were greeted by super-heroes including Superman, Batman, Super Ted and even a Teenage Ninja Turtle.

The staff at the branch made the transformation in support of 'Children's Hospice Week' - the UK's biggest awareness and fundraising event for children's hospice services - which asked the nation to "be a hero" for their cause.

The super heroes' aim was to raise awareness of, and funds for, Hampshire's local children's hospice - Naomi House and Jack's Place. Donations are still being received and counted but their efforts have been boosted by the sixty-five other NatWest branches across the area who have also been busy collecting for Naomi House and Jack's Place as part of the fundraising week.

Commenting on the event, Joe Hunter, NatWest's Senior Bank Manager for Havant (a.k.a Teenage Ninja Turtle), said: "It's very important to us that we are part of, and contribute fully to, the local community in which we all live and work. As a result being able to do something like this for Naomi House and Jack's Place, who offer such a valuable service, is fantastic. We would all like to say a big thank you to our customers, colleagues, friends and family who donated so generously."

Lauren Shields, Corporate Fundraiser at Naomi House, said: "We are so pleased to have been supported by 66 NatWest branches from across the Central South. It costs £5 million to run Naomi House and Jack's Place each year and support over 250 families, so thank you to all those who donated and helped to make short lives special."
