What is St Luke's Hospice?

St Luke's is a hospice which cares for people aged 18 and above throughout Sheffield who have incurable illnesses. Their aim is always to control the patients symptoms, alleviate pain, and give them the best possible quality of life – all free of charge. It costs £6 million per annum to keep St Luke's open, and government funding, via NHS trusts only provides one third of the funds required, which means the Hospice has to raise a staggering £4 million each year to provide this vital end-of-life care.

This challenge was set up by a St Luke's Supporter who has seen first hand, the amazing care given to patients through St Luke's and whilst donations are now closed we would like to thank all our donators for their wonderful contributions.

Mid-month Inspiration

As we are a monthly challenge, not a weekly one, we know that people see the challenge on the 1st, intend to play along, but then forget about us with all the weekly challenges that come along in between.  So from now on, we thought we'd do a little mid-month inspirational post each month, to remind you what the challenge is while you still have time to play along - particularly as there is the chance of a prize every month now for our favourite card.

So, you still have a couple of weeks left to "come fly with us" - your card can be any theme as long as it has something that "flies" on it.  Here are a couple of new cards to hopefully inspire you to play along:

Lynne went with this lovely bird, with lots of embossing and detail.  Click here to read all about it.

Deborah did a masculine card with her hot air balloons for her first card so has gone all pink and girly with a fabulous Pagasus!

I decided to go for a masculine card for a change as I did something so girly the first time.  The details are on my blog here.

I hope this post has jogged your memory and made you want to play along with us this month.

Best of luck!
