That Soapbox Chat


Minh Lan Nguyen, Hospice in the Weald

Season 1, Ep. 5

In this episode we chat with Minh Lan Nguyen, Fundraising Relationship Manager at Hospice in the Weald, about how the hospice has adapted in lockdown to not only continue their essential 24/7 palliative care services as normal, but also be able to treat patients diagnosed with COVID-19.

Minh explains how fundraising has changed (possibly permanently!) with their necessary adoption of virtual fundraising, and how to get involved in their first big event in lockdown celebrating 40 years of care - the virtual Hospice Run - where you can complete 10k in 40 days starting today, Tuesday 1st September and raise money to help patients and their loved ones get the care they deserve.

We also talk about how the Hospice came to be the long term charity supported by the Tunbridge Wells Soapbox Race, what it meant to the Hospice to be involved, and how their services and support have personally touched Nicole and other members of the Soapbox team.
