Murdered estate agent’s legacy gives hospital new facility for children

A fund set up in memory of a murdered estate agent has paid for a hospital’s new £15,000 sensory room which will be used by children.

The Nikki Waterhouse Trust commemorates Nikki Waterhouse, an agent with Hunters which her father helped found.

Nikki died aged 32 in 2013 at the hands of former army officer Jeremy Green.

He killed her in the flat she shared with Hunters’ colleague Karen Browne. Karen was very badly injured.

Green is currently in jail for a minimum 34-year term.

After Nikki’s death her father, together with Kevin Hollinrake, Glynis Frew, Ed Jones and Martin Robinson, set up the fund in her memory, wanting something good to come out of the tragedy.

Nikki loved children, and the Nikki Waterhouse Trust aims to support children and their families in times of need.

The new sensory room at York Hospital will help children from birth onwards.

Andy Jennians, deputy manager for children’s services at the hospital, said: “A new sensory room will have a number of benefits for some of the hospital’s most vulnerable patients, and we are thrilled to receive the generous donation by the Nikki Waterhouse Trust to make this possible.”

John Waterhouse said: “We feel that funding this project is a wonderful use of the money raised through many great fund-raising activities.

“We are proud that we can help and support some of the most vulnerable patients. The room will give children a place to feel safe and have fun during their hospital stay.”

    Inspiring story. This is the part of being an estate agent people don’t see. We all have families, we are known in our local communities and our reputation is very important. Pity the media and purplebricks are using war type propaganda to label us.
