A Plea for help from St. Margaret's Hospice

Over 1,200 volunteers help St. Margaret's care for people at the end of their lives.

We have a number of roles, from Ward and Admin volunteers to teams of people helping at our fundraising events attended by thousands of people. All our volunteers contribute to helping St. Margaret's make each day count for patients across Somerset.

We are in need of some volunteers to help our fundraising department with collection tins and collection days in local supermarkets.

I'd be really grateful if you could inform your readers and ask them to get in touch on 0845 345 9671.

Stay well this winter

Winter can be seriously bad for our health but there a number of things you can do to keep you and your family well this winter.

Don’t delay in getting your flu jab. The vaccine takes around 10-14 days to be effective so getting vaccinated now will protect you in time for Christmas and into January when cases of flu are known to increase.

You are eligible to receive a free NHS flu jab from your GP if you:

* are 65 years of age or over * are pregnant * have certain medical conditions * are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility * receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill

Here are some top tips about staying well this winter:

* At the first sign of a cough or cold, get immediate advice from your pharmacist before it gets more serious * Speak to your pharmacist about medicines you should have in stock over winter * Remember to pick up prescription medications before the Christmas holidays start as many GPs and pharmacies will close over the holidays * It is important to keep warm in winter, so heat your home to at least 18°C (65°F), if you can, you might prefer your living room to be slightly warmer

· Don’t delay, if you are eligible for a free NHS vaccination get it now, it is free because you need it.

Please also look out for the more vulnerable people you know this winter in your community and support them where you can with the Stay Well This Winter advice and make use of all the local help that’s available – it could be a lifesaver.

You can watch the NHS Lewisham choir ‘Stay Well This Winter’ video here

Surviving Winter Campaign

Expecting your Winter Fuel Payment? Don’t need it? Donate it! Surviving Winter is an award-winning campaign that encourages people to donate some or all of their unwanted Winter Fuel Payments to other people in their communities who need it most. A Surviving Winter grant doesn’t just pay for extra heating. It’s hand delivered by one of our small number of trusted local partners, like Citizens Advice South Somerset. A Surviving Winter grant becomes the foundation for a new relationship that can help overcome the isolation and loneliness that many older people experience. With the support of over 300 donors, Somerset Community Foundation was able to provide vital grants to 390 older people to help them through last winter. Please help us grow this campaign to reach every isolated and vulnerable household in the county.

To find out more about Surviving Winter, please visit: To donate some or all of your Winter Fuel Payment, please send a cheque made out to Somerset Community Foundation (SW written on the back), Yeoman House, Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet, BA4 6QN. You can also donate online or call 01749 344949. Gift Aid forms are also available to download on the website. Thank you for making a difference to an elderly person in your community this winter!
