Volunteer with us

Lend a Hand

This summer, the Big Help Out is calling on everyone across the UK to lend a hand to causes that need a bit of help in your local area!

What is The Big Help Out?

Many brilliant organisations and charities organise activities for you to lend a helping hand. Even the smallest of actions can make a big difference. So if you have an hour or a day to spare, it could make a real difference in your community. You never know, it might even become a regular thing.

How can you help?

We have opportunities in our 31 shops across Somerset and in the fundraising team. Additionally, there are six opportunities in Taunton Hospice for people to help us on Friday, 7 June, supporting the Estates team. Some maintenance work in the building will be required. If you are interested, click on the button below to see the roles available, or fill out the form below to express your interest in volunteering with us.


Volunteers are an essential and valued part of our team at St Margaret’s Hospice and thanks to the generous support of over 900 incredible volunteers we can continue to be there for around 5,000 people across Somerset, every year.

Whether you want to make good use of your skills, gain valuable experience, get more involved with your local community, or simply wish to give something back, meet new people and have fun, volunteering with St Margaret’s Hospice can help make a difference.

There are lots of ways you can get involved as a volunteer at St Margaret's. We offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities in our hospices, our shops and our fundraising activites. Whether you have a few hours here or there or regular time to give, there are plenty of ways for you to get involved.
