Join St Margaret's Hospice Care as we celebrate 40 years of care.
Forty years ago, on 7 January, 1980, St Margaret’s was registered as a charity.
Since then, thousands of people have worked, volunteered or raised funds to enable us to provide care and support to patients and their families during their precious last months, weeks and days. Today St Margaret’s has around 300 staff and 1,200 volunteers. Last year we supported more than 4,900 people across Somerset.
We’re so excited about our 40th anniversary. I want to pay tribute to the work of all the volunteers and staff over those years who have made St Margaret’s the phenomenal organisation it is. I’m optimistic about the future for St Margaret’s over the next 40 years because of all the work our local community does to support us. We will be working in partnership with GPs, district nurses, nursing homes and community hospitals to make sure that people don’t have to face a life-limiting condition alone and frightened.
- Ann Lee, Chief Executive of St Margaret's Hospice Care
