Woking Hospice Event at the House of Lords

Optichrome Group Managing Director Natalie Stephens was invited by the Earl of Liverpool to the House of Lords for a special Woking Hospice Networking event this week (16th May 2017).

The Hospice held the event to extend its fundraising and relationship building opportunities and Natalie was invited to give a key note speech about her families own close experiences with the Hospice, in particular the incredible support the Stephens family received from the hospice following the sad passing of Ted Stephens, Natalie’s father.

During Natalie’s speech she said “To have a facility like the Woking Hospice in our community is so important, the reach that the hospice has is actually beyond comprehension.  Not only does the hospice give day to day care to thousands of patients, the services it offers, help families with practical, emotional and social support.”

The event was hosted by Sky News presenter Isabel Webster, sponsored by VMware and attended by over 175 supporters from all sectors of the community.

Woking and Sam Beare Hospice is a patient-centred charity delivering specialist palliative care for the whole family, they provide free of charge holistic care and support services for patients with life-limiting and terminal illnesses, their families and carers. Caring for over 1,400 patients both in the hospice and in their own homes, their aim is to enable patient choice and the best quality of life.

The Hospice is currently fundraising for their new hospice building which is due to open for patient admissions on 23rd May 2017.
