Natta’s Nominated Charities

For several years Natta has been supporting 3 charities that are close to our hearts. Natta supports 2 National Charities, The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity. Our local nominated charity Woking & Sam Beare Hospices located in Woking, is a patient-led charity that delivers specialist palliative care to people who have advanced life-limiting conditions, as well as supporting their carers and families.

The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity

Registered Charity No. 1095197

We have been actively supporting their Oak Center for Children and Young People for over 10 years and to date, the Natta Group has raised over £60,400 which includes £7,800 raised from our annual Charity Golf Day in July 2021.

A part of these funds went towards the development of The Glade –  a beautiful garden for the patients and families of the Oak Center. The garden provides a relaxing and safe outside space for patients, visiting siblings and for parents who now have an area to relax and be away from the ward environment. We were delighted to have been invited to the opening ceremony of The Glade in April 2019.

In 2020, we also had the privilege of receiving a guided tour of the Oak Center.

The Royal Marsden’s vision is to be Europe’s leading centre for children and young people and the world leader in paediatric drug development. To turn this vision into a reality, the hospital has expanded its existing children’s unit to create a new state-of-the-art centre. The Centre is the most advanced of its kind in the country. There is expanded daycare and outpatient services, as well as a brand-new age-appropriate inpatient accommodation for children and teenagers which includes a schoolroom on each floor, playrooms for the younger patients, a chill-out zone and an outdoor roof terrace.

The Centre also has the only facility in the UK dedicated to the early clinical evaluation of new therapies for childhood cancers.

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity

Registered Charity No. 1053876

Natta started supporting Rainbow Trust in 2012. Last year we raised £7,800 from our golf day. We also contribute £1 to the Rainbow Trust for each Observation Card that is filled in on-site and for suggestions that are filled out and posted in our ‘Suggestion Box’ at Natta HQ.

In January 2021, Natta hit an £80,000 fundraising milestone for Rainbow Trust. This has helped to provide thousands of hours of emotional and practical support to families who have a child with a life-threatening or terminal illness in Surrey and Hampshire.

Family support lies at the heart of all that Rainbow Trust does.

They care for families who have a child with a life-threatening or terminal illness, providing bespoke emotional and practical support for the whole family, whenever and wherever it is needed. Today they are the only organisation that provides support directly to the whole family, helping them to keep hold of a normal life as much as possible.

Rainbow Trust has nine teams of Family Support Workers who are there to help 24 hours a day from diagnosis, through treatment, and for some, through bereavement and beyond. They commented, “We stay for as long as the family needs us.”

Woking & Sam Beare Hospices

Registered Charity No. 1082798 & No. 1115439

Over the past four years, Natta has been working with and raising money for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices (WSBH) in a variety of fun team-based challenges. 2019 was the second year that Natta had participated in their annual Dragon Boat Race, taking home gold and raising more than £4,000 for the Hospice.

Following this, Natta wanted to learn more about this fantastic charity. Natta’s MD visited the Hospice which initiated a new opportunity for us to get further involved.

After meeting with the Hospice Fundraising Director, we agreed to undertake the groundworks and hard landscaping to develop a once derelict unused bit of land at the back of the Hospice into a new ‘Wildlife Garden’.

Natta has since taken part in the Woking & Sam Beare Hospices thrilling firewalk in both 2019 and again in 2021. This was a great team-building event for us to get involved in whilst raising funds for a fantastic cause.

Last year, we were delighted to have raised £7,800 from our annual Charity Golf Day. Following this, Natta kick-started 2022 by creating a wonderful Japanese Garden at the local hospice. We provided the materials and manpower to transform the originally dark and overgrown space into a calm and peaceful area for hospice staff.

Woking & Sam Beare Hospices exists to offer and promote the highest quality care possible for people with advanced terminal illnesses. They also provide help and support to their families and other individuals important to their care.

Each year they care for around 2,000 patients. Over 70% of their care is delivered across Surrey in the community. This works out as being 8,760 hours of care every single year.
