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.

March Winners

Good morning and Happy Easter to all our lovely followers - hope you are enjoying a fabulous day [and lots of chocolate ;-)  ]

It's been a real challenge picking our winner for last month's spring challenge - we have a record number of entries and they were all just gorgeous - spring certainly seemed to be a popular challenge with you all.  After much deliberation our overall winner is Jakki  with her beautiful soft pink and green card.  The layers are just gorgeous and the sentiment is certainly all about spring!   Jakki wins the magazine and Waltzingmouse stamp set.


For a record number of entries, we also have a record number of runners up who all get our St Luke's Lovelies badge:










All your cards were very different but all made us think of spring so thanks for sharing them with us.  Hope you'll all be back to have a go in our blingy anniversary challenge too.
