Rod's Taunton Concert Raised £150k for Local Charity

St Margaretís biggest ever fundraiser

posted by Mike Walton



St Margaretís Somerset Hospice raised a record amount from its sell-out Rod concert held at the County Cricket Ground, Taunton, in June.

Around 18,000 fans helped to raise around £150,000 in what the hospice described as its biggest ever fundraiser.

St Margaretís is the fourth largest hospice in the country and provides specialist care to 3,200 patients a year with progressive, life limiting illnesses in Somerset.

Services include two inpatient units, day hospice centres and community hospice services supporting people in their own homes.

It costs more than £27,000 a day, or £10 million a year, to run the charity and relies on its shops, donations and fundraising activity to be successful.

The concert was the brainchild of St Margaretís Clinical Director Ann Lee.
