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.

Christmas is still coming.....

.....and you still have 9 days left to play along in our Christmas card making challenge.  We've had some fabulous entries so far but we all need extra cards for our stash at this time of year so why not use our challenge as an excuse to make a few more???? 

Here's a little more inspiration from the Design Team to get you in the mood:



Hope that's put you all in the mood for Christmas!  Dig out your stash and have a little play and remember the fayre is on this Sunday so if you want to send cards for that, please post them by tomorrow at the latest as I will be collecting from the hospice on Friday and the Sheffield postal system is taking a while for things to get through at the minute.
