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.

Sheffield Fayre

If you're local to Sheffield, and looking for something to do this bank holiday weekend, then why not come and check out the Sheffield Fayre. It's on Sunday and Monday 10.30 am - 5.30 pm and it's FREE ENTRY. If you happen along to the craft tent, then you will find my hubby and me, with all the wonderful cards you've all so generously donated. Hopefully they will go down a storm and we'll have loads of money to give to St Lukes. Keep your fingers crossed for nice dry weather for us this time ;-) 

I've done a copy of the flyer below but if it's too small to read - then download your own pdf version from here http://www.norfolk-park.com/news.php?id=95

See you there maybe.......
