Our employees have been sticking close to their roots to raise over £1,500 for St. Margaret's Hospice in Yeovil, Somerset.

With software design and development for land, sea, air and transport the main activity at our Yeovil site, the challenges set were right up their street with such events as a Rubik Cube challenge, design a Super Hero and a quiz with a difference taking place recently.

Bridget Hill, St. Margaret's Hospice Community Fundraiser for the Yeovil area, said: "This is such a wonderful donation from the BAE Systems employees. It is great that they all had fun raising it and it will make a huge difference to the hospice. For example, this donation could pay for an inpatient for over four days care or laundry costs for the hospice for a whole month."

Natasha Harrison, Software Engineer and Charity Co-ordinator for BAE Systems said: “St. Margaret's Hospice was the clear winner in our staff poll as the charity that should receive this donation.  They are a great local charity undertaking fantastic work at the Hospice in Yeovil and we are very proud to be able to support them.”

St Margaret's Hospice is a local charity committed to providing specialist palliative care, advice, support and respite to patients and their families living in Somerset and parts of neighbouring counties.
