A CHARITY supporting terminally-ill youngsters and their families is to get a boost in funds.

Hampshire recruitment agencies People Prospect Solutions and Prospect4 Sales will be supporting the Naomi House and Jacksplace hospices throughout 2014.

The recruiters have pledged to donate £25 to the charity for every candidate they place in a new job. And during the first week of the initiative, they had already placed ten jobseekers, raising £250.

The money will help the hospices continue to provide 24-hour care for children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.

Louise Ogilvy, director at People Prospect Solutions and Prospect4 Sales, said: “With the recent expansion of our business, now is the ideal opportunity for us to give something back to the unsung heroes of our community.”

Sarah Hudson, area fundraiser at Naomi House and Jacksplace said: “It is wonderful that People Prospect Solutions have chosen to support Naomi House and Jacksplace in 2014.”
