Japanese Garden for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices

The Natta Team kickstarted the year with a fantastic community project for one of our chosen charities, Woking & Sam Beare Hospices!

Natta provided the materials and manpower to create a wonderful Japanese Garden at the local hospice. Doing this has transformed the originally dark and overgrown space into a calm and peaceful area. Located just outside the staff room, it gives the hospice nurses an area to enjoy for themselves. As well as this, patients will be able to look out over the garden from their rooms above.

Woking & Sam Beare Hospices Fundraising Director, Phil Wormley said: “I have already heard lots of really positive comments from our nurses who are grateful for the transformation Natta has made to this space. It will make a huge difference to their well-being to have somewhere like this to enjoy and relax. Especially after they have been on their feet for long hours on the ward or out in the community.”

Natta Managing Director, John Whelan, also commented: “It’s fantastic to have been able to provide this space for the nursing staff at Woking & Sam Beare Hospices. As one of our chosen charities, we see first-hand the incredible work they do and are thrilled to be able to give back and construct this relaxing garden space.”
