St. Margaret’s Hospice has over 1,200 volunteers, helping us care for patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness across Somerset. Our volunteers come from all walks of lives, although not many of them walk with four legs!

Patrick the cat has been a permanent fixture of St. Margaret’s Yeovil Hospice since it was a building site in 2003. He took a liking to the builders and has now made the hospice his home.

Patrick is known for his stand-offish persona when walking through the hospice, but to patients, families and carers he lets his guard down and brings comfort and light relief to all.

We’d like to say a huge 'THANK YOU' to Patrick the cat.
