Fundraising for St Margaret's Somerset Hospice

In memory of Sam Holland
We provide free hospice care in Somerset to around 5,000 people each year


In April this year, I will be walking 150 miles from Wells Cathedral to Westminster Cathedral to raise money for St Margaret's Hospice Care.

My walk will be in memory of my dear friend, Sam Holland, who passed away after a short illness in July 2021, aged only 50. Sam was Head of P.E. at The Blue School in Wells, and was noted by colleagues and friends as a “champion of comprehensive education” with an uplifting and motivating approach that had a tremendous impact on all of her pupils.

Sam and I had been close friends for over 20 years and as a means of celebrating her life as well as thanking St Margaret’s Hospice in Taunton for the care they provided in her last few weeks, I will take on this challenge to raise funds, support, and awareness for the charity.

About the charity
