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.

December winners

Sorry for the delay ladies, but it's been one of those weekends......

Without further delay - here are our winning entries for our "let it snow" challenge from last month.

Our overall winner, and therefore the winner of that lovely set of Waltzingmouse stamps kindly donated by our DT member Deborah is Loli - we all adored this beautiful sparkly snowflake creation - so elegant and striking.

We have three runners up this month - who all get our St Luke's Lovelies badge to show off.  Firstly Anne - we loved your delicate lacey snowflake design with just a tiny hint of bling.  Mary's frosty ice fairy really stood out to us all - have a look at the face in close up - it's definitely got the chill factor!  And last but by no means least (winners are in order of entry number) Hazel with this delightful frosty scene.  We loved the inky background you created and the strong tree silhouettes.

 Thanks to you all ladies - your winners badges will be winging their way through cyberspace shortly.
