Could you help buy something from our nurses’ wish list?

I’m Hayley, one of the nurses here at Woking & Sam Beare Hospices. I love my job and it is a privilege to work with such a fantastic team. I see on a daily basis the comfort my colleagues and I are able to bring to our patients and their families at a very difficult time. So to see our new state-of-the-art hospice come to life, from what was a dusty building site, is incredibly exciting.

We’ve only been able to make it this far because of the generosity of local people. You have helped us to create our beautiful hospice building. You have also enabled us to buy specialist equipment that will allow my colleagues and I to offer the very best care to everyone who comes through our doors. If you have already donated to our new build appeal – ‘thank you so much‘. Your generosity really is appreciated.

We’re so close now, but there are still some items that we need help to be able to buy. Below are a few of the key items we, as nurses, believe will really make a difference to the experience of our patients and their loved ones.

Please do help if you can. Your gift really will make a difference – thank you.

 

 

Duvets and pillows

Each room needs a full set of duvets and pillows. they will be soft, comfortable and soothing for patients.

For each room we need 2 duvets (£17 each) and 6 pillows (£14.40 each); enough to ensure we always have a fresh change available. Donate here.

 

 

Personal notice boards

These large durable boards will be in each patient bedroom and can be used to display personal cards, letters and photos from loved ones.

Patients can also display things they might want to bring in from home. We need 20 of these notice boards at £50 each. Donate here.

 

 

Sofa chairs

These chairs will enable family members to stay overnight in the room with their loved one.

They cost £1,020 each, so ten donations of £102 could help us purchase one of the 5 sofa chairs that we need. Donate here.

 

 

Smart televisions

Patients and families often want to watch a favourite programme or film together. But these TVs can also be digital notice boards, keeping patients informed of the complementary therapies available on that day, or even what’s on the menu.

They will be Internet connected and also ready for video calls like Skype, so that patients can share special moments with family and friends. We need 20 of these Smart TVs at £250 each. Donate here.
