I am delighted to have been able to visit St. Margaret’s Hospice in Taunton, and to have found out more about the vital help and support they provide to local people across the county, meeting some of the incredible volunteers and staff who are doing so much to help care for patients and their families. I am very excited to be able to support them in any way I can and to help them raise as much money as possible to keep their much-needed services going
