Money raised by our street collections and sale of programmes is donated to our local Somerset Hospice St. Margaret’s. The Hospice provides free care, advice and support to people diagnosed with an illness that is no longer responsive to curative treatment.
Our Volunteer Collectors at Candlelight will have blue buckets, will wear a sash or tabard and will carry a license to collect. Most of the entertainers will have a bucket for St Margarets.
The main Candlelight Information Centre and Hospice Shop is at the top of the High Street just below the Yarn Market on the same side. Programmes will be on sale there and apart from general information you will also be able to buy the Hospice Christmas Cards and Calendars.
Usually there is a tea and coffee sales area in aid of St Margaret's. For the last two years it has been in West Street, but it is a good idea to check on your programme.
