Famous Hollywood star visits local hospice

Staff at Naomi House & Jacksplace were shocked to receive a visit from 24, Stand By Me and Designated Survivor star, Kiefer Sutherland yesterday, Sunday, 19th of August.

The Hollywood legend was fresh from a performance in Bournemouth and due to play at Wickham Festival but found enough time to visit the children, young adults, families, nurses and carers at the Winchester based hospices.

He was responding to a plea the charity made on social media, asking Mr. Sutherland to pay them a visit for “some tea, cake and a jam”.

And that’s precisely what he did; playing a whole medley of his songs with the support of his band, then enjoying a well-earned cup of tea and some sponge cake while families explained the vital care available to them at the hospices, and staff detailed their complex nursing and care service.
