St. Margaret's Somerset Hospice Weekly Prize Draw
St. Margaret's Somerset Hospice hereby gives 28 days' notice that the terms and conditions of its Weekly Prize Draw are changing and new terms and conditions will apply for all draws taking place on or after Friday 2nd November 2018.

From 2nd November 2018, Weldmar Hospicecare Trust will no longer be an approved beneficiary of the Weekly Prize Draw and all proceeds will be for the sole benefit of St. Margaret's Somerset Hospice.
