If you are fit an able yourself, it's hard to imagine how devastating and limiting it can be to lose levels of mobility and independence you have taken for granted.

Jon was very active until he was diagnosed with a very rare illness at the age of 49 that took him from being fit and independent to requiring a lot of physical help. Read Jon's full story here.

The community team at St Margaret's Hospice Care help patients like Jon live every day to the fullest, conserving their energy for the things that really matter to them - creating lasting with their families and friends, making each day count.

Please give what you can and help us provide the compassionate and individual care we all want for people in our community living with life-limiting illnesses.

Will you support us with a gift this summer, and help someone else in our community make the most of the time they have left?
