Your Impact

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. 

We are pleased to introduce our first ever impact reports which has examples of our care, we hope you enjoy reading about the difference your support makes.



St Margaret's strives to make each day count for patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness across Somerset. We are supported by patients and their families, staff, volunteers and supporters who make all this possible. Some of these wonderful people have been kind enough to share their stories with us...
