St. Margaret's Hospice is working in collaboration with Somerset Day and asking the community to join us for The Great Somerset Tea Party.

Whether you invite friends round for a natter, a cuppa and cake or challenge the office to the biggest 'bake off' seen, you will be helping ensure patients and their families in Somerset facing a life-limiting illness receive the care and support they deserve.

As a county we are hoping to raise £26,000, which could pay for a day of care across Somerset, in our In-patient Units and out in your community. No matter how big or small, your support can make a huge difference in the following ways:

  • Donating £10 could pay for transporting a patient in your community to one of our Sunflower Day Care Centres.
  • Raising £25 could pay for one of our 24-hour adviceline nurses supporting patients in their own homes.
  • Having a target of £100 could pay for a Community Specialist Nurse visit for one of our local patients being cared for at home.

Register to receive your FREE tea party pack through the post here.

To help you plan your event, we've created a number of tools to help you.
