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 Update

Hi everyone

Just to let you know that there will be no mid-month inspiration post this month - sorry but with the countdown to Christmas now getting ever closer, the DT and I are rather busy.  I will get around all your entries to comment before the end of the month but it might not be until the Box Day lull.....  Please accept my apologies.

Also, as I normally prepare the posts to go live at midnight each month, giving that at the end of this month that would be with the chimes of Big Ben, I'm afraid I may be a little too drunk to see the keyboard....  So with that in mind and to give us all a little longer to prepare our DT projects, the new challenge will be going live on Monday 3rd January.  Do come back then to check out our new challenge - it's a good one to start off the New Year ;-)

In the meantime, can I take this opportunity to thank you all for playing along so far, and to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a great slide into a Happy and Healthy New Year :-D
