Christmas Eve visit from the Mayor

We were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Woking Cllr Will Forster, who was accompanied by Hannah Thompson, at Woking Hospice today. Our Mayor made a special visit to come and wish our staff and patients a merry Christmas today – Christmas Eve.

Mr Forster and Ms Thompson were greeted in the hospice cafe by our Chairman Tim Stokes and our Community CNS Team Leader Shelagh Musoke, who then took them on a tour of the hospice and introduced them to staff. This included the Community Team, the CoSI Team and then some of the nurses and doctors on the Ward.

One truly special moment was when one family invited the Mayor and Ms Thompson in to meet their father in his in-patient room, who was being visited by his six year old granddaughter at the time.

From all of us at the hospice we would like to say a special thank you to Mr Forster and Ms Thompson for taking the time out of their busy schedule to come and spread some Christmas cheer.
