In loving memory of Michael Roberts, Woking & Sam Beare Hospices is delighted to announce that one of its 20 bedrooms at newly built Woking Hospice will be named after the late Mr Roberts, whose family have supported the Surrey-wide hospice for over two-and-a-half decades.

Held on Wednesday 20th June, the hospice held a special room naming ceremony to mark the extraordinary life of Michael Roberts, who was the father of Mark, Richard, Christopher and James Roberts and founder of Trident Honda, the family run community car dealership in Ottershaw which has been a corporate partner of Woking & Sam Beare Hospices since 1992. Also in attendance for the naming of the room were Terry Smith and Tony Usher representing Woking Rotary Club who over the years have been hugely supportive of the hospices and have now funded the hoist for Room 20.

A Montage of the 2018 Trident Otters

Congratulations to all the teams who took part in the 6th annual Dragon Boat Races on Sunday 3 June at Goldsworth Park Lake, Woking.

Sponsored by Trident Honda, the event saw 10 teams take to the water in brightly painted, dragon-headed boats on an extremely hot and blisteringly sunny day. The event provided a colourful spectacle for all our visitors during the day, who came to the lakeside to cheer on the rowers and to enjoy the family fun day activities on the bank too.

Our team, the Trident Otters, won its first race convincingly, won its second race against the Hospice Heroes with a photo finish, before being finally beaten in the third race, despite achieving our best time of the day and possible to date!

The worthy winners, Team Seymours from Seymours' Estate Agents, crossed the lake in a very speedy 57.94 seconds. Second and third places were won by two teams from Natta Building Company, the 'Average Team' and the 'Dream Team'.

Friday, 20 October 2017 at 12.40pm

Only a few cakes left

We are today, Friday 20th October, holding a Mufti for Michael day in remembrance of our founder Michael Roberts and to raise money for the Woking Hospice, who cared for Michael so well towards the end of his life.

Thank you to all our team for supporting the event, and especially to Alex Russell, who kindly volunteered to bake cakes for a cake sale. Sadly there are very few left now (see photo opposite)!

In all we believe that we will have collected around £350 for this wonderful cause today.

Thank you to all our customers today for tolerating our questionable sartorial choices and especially to those who decided to contribute to the appeal.
