At St Margaret's Hospice Care we are incredibly proud of the impact our care and support has to patients and their families across Somerset. This care and support is only possible because of the generous donations we receive from you, our local community.
Below you'll be able to see the real impact your support has...
St Margaret's strives to make each day count for patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness across Somerset.
