In a world often fraught with challenges, charities serve as beacons of hope, striving to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need. As another year draws to a close, we take pride in reflecting upon the impactful journey we’ve embarked on to support our partner charity, Naomi House & Jacksplace, and the profound impact they have made on the lives of those it serves.

Naomi-House-Jacksplace-LogoOur commitment to the cause has manifested in a myriad of ways over the years, each contributing to the charity’s mission of offering invaluable respite, end-of-life care and bereavement support to children and young adults with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, as well as their families.

The heart of any charitable activity lies in its programmes and initiatives. Having ended 2022 on an incredible high after the £13,350 raised at the National Symposium and over £10,000 in valuable donations from the ‘Charity Hustle’, it was only natural that we wanted to further strengthen our support in 2023.


Beyond financial contributions.

When we moved into our new offices in Bracknell late 2022, it needed both artwork and a burst of life to complete it. We realised this could be a fantastic opportunity to work with the charity to produce key pieces that had real meaning for BioHorizons Camlog.

The result, two inspiring canvases created by their young visitors to help brighten up our walls and provide a snapshot of daily life at the hospices. The hospice Play & Activities team, children and young adults had great fun getting creative, armed with paint in the BioHorizons Camlog corporate colours, ready to embrace sensory activities and messy play. Such activities are important to the charity to help promote social and emotional wellbeing. Naturally, we extended a financial gesture to express our gratitude for their exceptional creations.

Raising money step-by-step.

Our commitment to Naomi House & Jacksplace heightened in September as members of the BioHorizons Camlog team were challenged to complete the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge, alongside the Henry Schein Cares CSR event.

Commencing their ascent at 6am amidst humid weather, the team successfully completed a demanding 24-mile (38.6 km) round-trip journey, surmounting a substantial elevation gain of 1585m (5200ft). They accomplished this impressive feat within a challenging 12-hour timeframe and as a group helped raise £10,969 for the Henry Schein Cares 3 Peaks Challenge, £1,547 of which went directly to Naomi House & Jacksplace from this event.

In addition to these charitable efforts, BioHorizons Camlog have continued to run smaller, more intimate events where we continue to donate all ticket sales to this worthwhile cause. Such events have helped us to raise £8,100. 2023 was also the first time Naomi House & Jacksplace held their Corporate Partner Day, where BioHorizons Camlog joined 14 other business to share fundraising experiences and insights, alongside team building events.


How your contributions make a difference.

Every year, the charity expends £7.2 million to provide its essential services, benefiting nearly 550 families annually. Less than 10% of this cost comes from statutory sources, meaning the charity relies on the generosity of its supporters. For example, £150 could fund seven hours of crucial expert nursing care at Naomi House & Jacksplace.

Through generous donations and fundraising endeavours, we have supplied Naomi House & Jacksplace with not only £10,099 in 2023 but the crucial resources needed to implement and sustain its programmes. Our financial contributions have translated directly into tangible impacts, aiding the organisation in making a meaningful difference in the lives it touches.
