Naomi’s Mission

'Naomi - A Hurricane of Happiness'

Naomi was an integral part of HK for four years. A daily playful dose of sunshine, ray of happiness, passionate, intelligent, who loved a serious debate. A loyal friend to anyone and everyone; enthusiastic in every aspect of life.

An exceptionally kind person who put people first and who saw the good in everyone.

She was loved and respected by all.

A beacon of hope within humanity, soft, nurturing, with a genuinely selfless deep-wish, to make the world a better place. A realist, approaching everything openly and in true Naomi-style, changing the world one person at a time.

An outdoor enthusiast who loved nature. As a testament to her character, she was passionate and ethical in personal decisions, resulting in a positive impact in her approach to problems all around the world.

A rare gem. The ‘one in a million’.

We will never forget Naomi and we will always miss her. This page will keep her legacy alive.

These charities have been chosen to celebrate Naomi & her values

Refugee Action

Refugee Action help refugees who’ve survived some of the world’s worst regimes. They get them the basic support they need to live again with dignity. Then they help them build safe, happy and productive lives in the UK.

Their vision is that refugees and asylum seekers will be welcome in the UK. They will get justice, live free of poverty and be able to successfully rebuild their lives.

Emmaus UK

Emmaus supports people who have experienced homelessness by providing them with a home and meaningful work in a community setting.

The first Emmaus community opened in 1992 and there are now 29 communities spread across the UK. There are also four Emmaus groups currently working to open new communities.

Emmaus supports more than 750 formerly homeless people, by providing them with a home for as long as they need it and meaningful work in our social enterprises. There are plans to increase this to 1,000 places by 2020.

Foodhall Sheffield

Foodhall is a multi-award-winning open public dining room and kitchen at the heart of Sheffield city centre. Managed by the community, for the community, we tackle social isolation and encourage integration across a diverse range of community groups.

Foodhall intercepts food waste streams from local traders and uses this surplus to serve hot meals to all on a put-something-in’t-pot donation basis.

At its core, Foodhall represents community, skill sharing, education, participation, equality and inclusion.

    I’m writing from The Real Junk Food Project Sheffield and I wanted to say thank you so much for your kind donations. We miss Naomi terribly as she was such a positive life force. Naomi volunteered regulary for the project and was never without a smile. I remember her helping at an evening event we did and I said Thank You to her at the end. She told me to stop saying thank you and that she didn’t need thanking. Naomi really was a beautiful spirit and we still can’t quite believe that she isn’t here. Thank you for all that you’ve done to mark her legacy xxx

    Thank you so much for choosing Refugee Action to support as part of Naomi’s Mission, we are incredibly honoured to have been chosen. Your donations will make such a positive impact on some of the most vulnerable people in the UK in her memory. At Refugee Action we support refugees who have fled unimaginable horror, war and violence, and are desperately searching for safety for themselves, and their families. The people we see arrive here after long, treacherous journeys, but sadly reaching the UK is not the end of their journey. On arrival, they find themselves stigmatised, street homeless, destitute and with no support to navigate the complex asylum system to secure their right to humanitarian protection. Last year we supported almost 5,000 people seeking asylum and refugees to access justice, escape poverty and rebuild their lives. Your very kind support as part of Naomi’s Mission will enable us to continue to deliver this vital work across the country, for the people who need it most. On behalf of the thousands of people we see every year, and all volunteers and staff at Refugee Action– thank you.
