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.

The winning card was this gorgeous fruity number by Susan Goetter - a perfect example of an one layer card with lovely stamp composition and brilliant colouring (don't those strawberries make your mouth water???)  Congrats Susan - you win our LOTV stamps :-D

Our runners up this month who become "St Luke's Lovelies" and will get a badge emailed shortly, in numerical order are:
