Natalia Baeva will raise awareness about Sobell House in her community.

Our First Ambassador!

Hi, I’m Natalia, originally from Russia and now living in Oxfordshire.  I am married with two children and two Labradors. 

I started volunteering with Sobell House over a year ago as a volunteer driver and now I also help in the study centre.  I got involved with Sobell House by chance.  I was asked to help translate for a Russian doctor who was on a placement with the Hospice and I spent a week with him on the ward with doctors, nurses, therapists and a social worker.  I met the whole team and I liked it.  The atmosphere was fantastic. I had a look at the website and they said that they were looking for volunteers so I jumped at the opportunity!

I work part-time in ‘Homelingua’, an English language school and therefore I have time to volunteer which is perfect.

In the 90s, I was interested in the hospice movement in Russia before I came to the UK.   I am passionate about it and can see how much hospice care improves the quality of life of patients and families.

Right now I live here and want to get involved in my community so when I heard the fundraising talk about the need to raise awareness of the hospice I thought of my daughter’s school, my village, my church, and then I came to Dominique who mentioned the Ambassador role. 

I couldn’t believe that I am the first Sobell House Ambassador!  I thought there would be hundreds already.    It is an honour for me and I am really looking forward to raising awareness about the importance of hospice care and the good work that Sobell House does among the groups that I belong to and my local community.

We have a goal to raise money to grow the service and especially to build the new Sobell Clinic and Garden Annex so that gives me something very tangible to talk to potential supporters about.  I am project’s person and like to have a clear goal that I can work towards. 

I really can’t wait to get started and am full of ideas already!

Our First Ambassador!

Our aim is to have a team of a dozen Ambassadors who can help spread the word about Sobell House across Oxfordshire.
