Woking & Sam Beare Hospice patients and staff received a floral Valentine’s Day surprise when McLaren delivered 320 beautiful red roses to the hospice.
Delivered in an eye-catching McLaren 540C sports car, the roses have filled the hospice’s day care centre with stunning blooms.
Interim CEO and Director of Nursing Jayne Cooper said: ‘The roses were a lovely treat for all our patients, staff and visitors; a huge thank you to McLaren for such a thoughtful gesture. We very much value the ongoing support of locally-based companies like McLaren in raising awareness of our work and in our fundraising.

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.
Woking and Sam Beare Hospices will be opening its brand new hospice in Goldsworth Park in Woking during the Spring of 2017.
Its 20 spacious, modern and superbly equipped rooms, each with their own balcony, will provide patients with a calming and comfortable environment. The new premises will also enable the hospice team to provide a greater range of holistic support to those requiring care, and their families. The charity is still fundraising towards the remaining £1.4million needed for the new hospice. Donations to our New Build Appeal can be made online at http://www.wsbhospices.co.uk/about/new-build-appeal
Woking and Sam Beare Hospices has launched its Big Coffee Morning campaign, encouraging local individuals and groups to hold their own fundraising coffee mornings throughout February in aid of the charity. Supporters and fundraisers joined staff and patients in Woking Hospice’s day care centre to enjoy the charity’s inaugural Big Coffee Morning.
