I was in the Somerset town of Wellington today for work - I always pop into towns where I'm working to see what it's like and to get a copy of the local paper. I most certainly did not buy a chocolate eclair (ahem), but did pop into a couple of the town's charity shops.
One was St Margaret's Hospice where I bought a lovely Hobbs dress for work.
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.
