Monday, 8th August - St Margaret's Hospice

It's still Saturday and I'm still in my hometown. Last week, I got as far as I could with the blanket I've been making. I went back to Camp Hopson to get some wool in the same colour but was totally ignored when I tried to ensure the two skeins matched! However, just by total fluke, I came across a ball of wool in the charity shop that's the right colour - I can finish my blanket!!!

St Margaret's Hospice is your local charity committed to providing specialist palliative care, advice, support and respite to patients and their families living in Somerset and parts of neighbouring counties. Our care is available for those who have a terminal or life-limiting illness, for example cancer, motor neurone disease and chronic lung disease. In 2010 St. Margaret's celebrated 30 Years of Caring for the people of Somerset.

Through our medical expertise, nursing skills and specialist support services, we offer physical, emotional, social and spiritual care to our patients and their families. Bereavement support is also available.

Our services are also available to patients where our specialist knowledge, skills and expertise will provide relief for their specific illness, such as symptom control, breathlessness management, lymphoedema treatment, physiotherapy and occupational and complementary therapies.
