I am the Lottery and Raffles Manager. Together with a small team of staff and volunteers I facilitate the weekly lottery and annual raffles.
After having experienced first-hand the wonderful work carried out by the Hospice I started volunteering in 2013 in one of the Book Shops. Later that year I joined as a member of staff working with the fundraising team as Car Raffle & Lottery administrator. During this time I had the privilege of working with a fabulous group of volunteers taking the car raffle out into the community.
The highlight of every week is the phone call to the lottery player who has won first prize to congratulate them on their £1,000 win.
I love working for a charity that plays such a significant role in the local community.

I started working at the Hospice in 2017, as a Raffles and Lottery administrator, and now work in the Supporter Care Team as an administrator.
My main focus is to support the Fundraising team, as well as looking after our supporters, ensuring our supporters have a positive experience.
What I love most about working here is the difference we are making to people lives each day
I am the Corporate and Community Fundraiser for Woking & Sam Beare Hospice and Wellbeing Care.
I started working here in 2018 and love every second of it. What I enjoy most is connecting with our supporters and working with local businesses, committees and schools. It is so exciting to help organisations develop their fundraising ideas and join them on their journey in helping to make a difference in our community.
The Hospice is an incredible place to work. I also love our café (open to the public) that has excellent bacon rolls!

I joined the Hospice in July 2019 as the Challenge Events & Community Fundraiser.
I’ve participated in many fundraising events over the years and know just how important it is to raise funds for the Hospice.
I am the lead on all things sporty, from Skydives to Marathons, Cycling to Golf – you name it. I enjoy helping our supporters get the most out of their challenge event and help them reach their goals.
I started working as a volunteer for the Hospice and then became a staff member in 2011.
I work with the Healthcare at Home team as a healthcare assistant, working the night shift.
What I like most is the lovely feedback the Hospice at Home team receives. I love that my team works together to share the same goals to deliver the best possible care for patients and their families, making a difference in peoples lives.

I am the IT Technician at the hospice and I have been working here for over a year now.
Being the IT Technician means I work both in the hospice and in our office block too. My job involves a range of tasks all within IT infrastructure – not just fixing computers! I work on our IT database, the NHS database, telephones, software, hardware and CCTV.
I love my job as I know that I aid in the nurses providing their services efficiently as I keep their software up to date and running for them – they’re also really lovely to work with too. The office is full of funny, jovial people making it a great working environment.
