The Gala Spectacular will be held on Sunday 27 October at the New Victoria Theatre. The comedian is a longstanding supporter of the hospice after his mother was cared for by the Sam Beare Hospice in Weybridge.

Kerry Bennett, the  Woking & Sam Beare Hospices marketing director, said: “It was a pleasure to have Bobby and Danny visit us at the hospice and we are all really looking forward to the Gala Spectacular.

“On behalf of all those they made smile we thank them both for taking the time out of their busy schedules”.

The hospices deliver 8,760 hours of care and support to 2,000 patients each year. More than 70% of this is done in patients’ homes for in care or nursing homes.

Patients are primarily from Woking, Surrey Heath, north Guildford, Spelthorne, West Elmbridge and Runnymede but the hospice also cares for some people outside this region.

The charity needs to raise more than £8 million a year to provide its services, which are free of charge.
