The Big Surrey and Sussex Thank You: The thank you event for health and care workers and volunteers in Surrey and Sussex

About this event

This three-day family event is for everyone who works in health and care in Surrey and Sussex. That includes those who work in NHS hospitals in the area, as well as all of our partners across health and social care, local authority health or care teams, local community health charities and more. If you work in the NHS, or for another health or care organisation in Surrey and Sussex, you can come!

The event takes place over three days so we hope whatever hours you're working, most people will be able to attend at least part of the weekend.

**Tickets are limited and available on a first come first served basis**

  • This event is for health and care workers in Surrey and Sussex. You can also purchase tickets for as many family or friends as you wish.
  • Please ensure you purchase / book a ticket for everybody who will be attending.
  • All guests must arrive with the NHS/health or care worker who invited them and be ready to show their individual tickets on arrival.
  • The health and care worker must bring their work ID badge or admission may be refused to them and their guests.

The event is supported by SASH Charity (the hospital charity for Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust), and has been made possible thanks to the incredible generousity of Flower Farm, Godstone. Ticket prices are as low as possible to make the event accessible to all. Paying adult guests can book tickets for children/under 18s free of charge as long as they are attending with a parent or responsible adult, and all have valid tickets.

Ticket sales go towards covering event entertainment costs. Any proceeds from ticket sales or sponsorship beyond these costs will support SASH Charity - Registered charity 1054072. This will help transform two rooms for parents of premature babies in Surrey and Sussex, support staff welbeing at Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust, and help us say yes to more ideas from hospital staff, in the hospitals, and in the communities served by SASH NHS Trust.
