Come To Woking & Sam Beare Hospices Charity Shops To Celebrate 10 Years In Weybridge Town Centre
Join Us To Celebrate 10 Years OF Fundraising By Our Charity Shops In Weybridge High Street
“We are caring for over 400 patients in the Weybridge area every week. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the area for their continuing support “Barry Quinn, Director of Nursing
On Thursday 16th November 2017 it will be ten tears since the Sam Beare Charity shop and book shop opened their doors on Weybridge High Street and began raising funds and awareness for the hospices.
Although the original Sam Beare Hospice building has closed the Sam Beare Community Team is still based in Weybridge and very much a part of the local community caring for over 400 patients every week in the area. Over 70 % of the care the hospice provides is in the patient’s own homes by the community teams and this is delivered 365 days of the year.
To help us mark this special occasion the Mayor and Consort, Councillor Rachael Lake and Ian Lake will be visiting both shops to meet with members of our Sam Beare team the shop managers and our wonderful team of volunteers without who the shops could not operate.
Please join us to celebrate and say thank you to the community for their continued support.
Address: 5 & 7 High Street, Weybridge, Surrey, KT13 8AX
About Woking & Sam Beare Hospice
Woking & Sam Beare Hospice is a patient-centred charity that delivers specialist palliative care to adult patients of all ages who have life-limiting and terminal illnesses. We cover the North West Surrey region, providing free of charge holistic care and support services for patients, their families and carers. We care for over 1,400 patients both in our hospice and in their own homes (where over 70% of our care is delivered), enabling patient choice and the best quality of life.
We care for adults of all ages with a wide range of life limiting conditions such as cancer, heart disease, Motor Neurone Disease (MND), chronic pulmonary conditions, Parkinson’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis (MS). We help patients to manage their symptoms, which are often complex and why they require the expertise of our Clinical Nurse Specialists and specialist doctors.
Our services enable us to offer our patients holistic care, which means we offer practical, emotional, social and spiritual support as well as managing their medical needs. We offer day care services where patients receive assessments, treatments and therapies, as well as emotional and spiritual support. We also deliver counselling for our patients and their families, including child bereavement services and school support programmes.
We are a charity, and while we receive some government funding, around 75% of what we deliver is funded through our charity shops and fundraising activities. We could not do this without the generosity of all of our supporters, volunteers and the local community.
