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

Thought it was time for a little reminder about our month long challenge to make masculine cards for St Luke's Charity Cards Challenge - any card you like as long as it has a masculine theme is what we're looking for.

We have an AMAZING prize package this month for our favourite card - kindly donated by the lovely ladies at Craftie Charlie who also made this fabulous boys cupcake card to kick off the inspiration reminder:

Craftie Charlie - even cake can be masculine if you add kraft and some plaid ;-)

 Deborah - add a guitar and some grunge for a great rock themed teenage card

Lynne - add some black, some cogs and a bike and most guys are covered!

Tara  - more kraft and strong colours add a TV and you can't go wrong!

You've still got a couple of weeks to enter - so dig out your masculine colours and get creative for the fellas and you could still be in with a chance of winning all the craft goodiness that's on offer - check out the original blog post that is a sticky at the top of the blog for prize details and the linky tool.
