The south coast region of Persimmon Homes has selected the Naomi House hospice as its charity for the second year running and hopes to beat the £12,850 it raised last year.

It is planning a spectacular summer party at the Ageus Bowl on Saturday, June 7, which will include a hog roast, barbecue, Pimms, cider and a live band. It also hopes to provide nostalgic British attractions like dodgems, a raggle and a photo booth.
